The Spoils of Travel

As part of my Spring Break folly, I traveled to a real city with real stores! (Insert chords from the Hallelujah chorus here.) No need to peruse catalogs or surf internet storefronts, I was able to see objects of my desire up close and personal. I'm talking Anthropologie, Macy's, Williams Sonoma, etc, etc. I think even more than shopping, I truly just love to look at pretty and interesting things that I don't have access to everyday. I'm sure some of you feel the same way, so I thought I would share a mini glimpse of my loot with you.

The first photo shows my Macy's merchandise. Surprise, surprise, cupcake supplies and by Martha Stewart to boot! Oh yes, and a sampling from See's Candies...a girl has to keep her strength up while power looking right? For the record I did buy more than one piece of candy...only the production staff (me) got to it before the photo session.

These goodies are from Anthropologie. I'm sure you all have seen these latte bowls before. I know, I know, I'm the last girl on the block to have them, but I had to show them to you anyway! Did I mention I have a monogram fetish? (That's right, move over Laverne De Fazio.) So this hankie was a must have. I asked if I could take pictures of some of the store displays, but was told "No." Such a shame too because they had some FANTASTIC vignettes.
Last, I had to show you my find from Williams Sonoma. Who wouldn't love a cupcake mix in a can? It just looked so fun, I had to have it! I also picked up some of their great Easter things for less than half price! I'll save those for next year's Easter post though. LOL!

Hope your Saturday is filled with a quirky little assortment of things to make you happy!

Hi Melissa,
Thanks so much for stopping by. Of course since you stopped by I had to return the favor and your blog is absolutely adorable. I have those bowls. My daughter bought them for me for Christmas one year. I have a pink one too, of course. Anyway, love your blog and I am adding you to my favs. Look forward to more visits.

P.S. Oh, I almost forgot, my paint color is from Sherwin Williams and it is a mix of Mountain Air and Sleepy Blue. (I call it Sleepy Mountain, hehe).

I love your blog. It has been added to my favs. I left an earlier message but for some reason it didn't post. I love the apothecary jar filled with tickets. I too love apothecary jars.

The color on my walls is a combination of Sleepy Blue and Mountain Air. It is from Sherwin Williams.

Hi Melissa,
You went to all my favorite stores! What part of the country are you from? I'm spoiled with all these stores within one mile of me, so I was just curious where you are from. I love Anthropologie and wish that that store would come to our town, it's sister store, Urban Outfitters is here.
Oh, on the fabric that I'm using on my top, it isn't really slippery. The feel of it is almost like a cotton weave. It sews up a dream, and I've worked with it many times. Now, if you gave me silk charmouse I would want to tear my hair out!!
