I have no immediate use for any of these things, but I like them and think someone should buy them.
The Moroccan stool from Wisteria, available in pink (as shown) and a host of other nifty colors. I also like the rattan chairs, if they were darker wood I'd be intrigued even more.
And Anthropologie has some really pretty frames.
You know, the thing about Anthropologie? About 5 years ago I was at a company holiday party and a woman I work with was telling me that for Christmas shopping her husband would just go to Anthro and know he could pretty much get anything in there and she'd like it. At the time, having visited the Newbury Street store a few times....well, I just didn't get it. I was like, he gets you decorative knobs? Or drapey nightwear? Huh?
But, I think it's an age thing. Because now I totally get it. It's the only store I can reliably walk into and find something I want to buy. And for gifts? Yes. It's a yes.
I'm also liking these happy napkins. I find the teal/blue in combination with the orange to be surprising. And surprisingly nice.
Or, these sheets call out to me, I've been attracted to diamond patterns lately.
Oh, and I also have a little crush on Serena and Lily these days, so here are a few of their happiest-making things.
So! Go forth and pretend it's spring! Buy something colorful. Me? I'm planning a ski trip. That's what you call making lemonade out of a March snowstorm.
