Monday was my birthday! My husband said, "Let's go to Jacksonville." Being the more practical of the two of us, I knew we had a lot of things we need to do at home, so I said, "Okay!". I had a Pottery Barn gift card with a balance of $93.00 on it. My daughter gave me the card for Christmas and it was time to spend it. I wanted almost everything in the store. They have the most beautiful things. It was hard to narrow it down but I finally did. I enjoyed talking to a couple of the ladies who work there and oooing and ahhhing about some of the unique gorgeous things.
I got a milk bottle carrier...
I've never found an old one, so I have a new one that looks old. I'm very happy with it!
I got a glass dome food cover.
Same story-never found an old large one.
I got some hang tags and small blank cards.
I can always use these.
Then we went to another of my favorite stores.
I wish I had taken my camera. Anthropologie has the most beautiful and unique displays and merchandise. I picked out a white scarf with crochet fringe and flowers. Then a very nice lady said hello to me and ask if I was finding everything okay. Her name is Kelley Cooper and she is a great asset to Anthropologie! I ask her about a big burlap coffee sack. It turned out to be a display item.
Then I ask about a blue comforter which I loved but wanted in white. She had one and it was on sale! I thought it was the one I have wanted for over two years since I saw it in Country Living Magazine featuring the Martha's Vineyard cottage home of Tony Shalhoub, star of the hit television series, Monk, and his wife, actress Brook Adams. That was a jersey comforter with pulled pleated panels all over it. Well, the one they had isn't the one I've wanted for so long but I love it. I got the comforter and two pillow shams! Happy birthday to me!
Here is our bed with the old comforter. I love it too.
But, the new one just called out to me. It was saying, "you love me, buy me".
So, we did.
It is so soft and poofy.
