But the catalogs are still arriving!
Since I haven't done a "join me while my fingers do the walking through the catalogs"
post in a long time,
I thought I'd do one for this weekend.
Enjoy the window shopping!
I'm a big Star Wars fan (especially the first three).
Yoda pancakes would be fun!
This is from Williams-Sonoma Winter 2011.
It's the bright white sale at Crate and Barrel.
The bright colors of the pillows (above and below) would certainly
take the blah out of winter.
The rug is fun, too.
I thought the Max dinnerware at Crate and Barrel was great.
I liked that you can mix the patterned stoneware with the solid Delilah porcelain plates.
It was the Pottery Barn catalog that had me salivating.
I could show each and every page,
but I'm going to stick with the pillows.
These are called Cafe pillow covers.
They are designed after antique curiosity engravings.
Each reverses to a light shade of the same fabric (rugged linen/cotton).
I love the butterflies and there is also a bird and a flower.
They are going on my wish list!
Do you know about the Isabella catalog?
They say they have gifts for reawakening the spirit.
I keep looking at Lovey the Lavender Lamb.
Lovey has a lavender/flaxseed insert that is removable.
Pop Lovey into the microwave for 30 seconds
and then snuggle with him releasing the fragrance of lavender.
Sounds good to me.
How about a sleeping pig from Isabella?
Isn't he cute?
There is wonderful story that goes with him:
"When the pig was domesticated in China, owning one was considered to be an indication of a common man's prosperity and good fortune. If you were lucky enough to have a pig, you simply took very good care of it, and that meant it slept in the home. Quite simply, if you were wealthy enough to have a pig living in your house, life was pretty secure and happy. In fact, the Chinese symbol for "home" is a combination of the symbol for "pig" with the symbol for "roof" over it. (If there is a pig under the roof, it is a home of happiness, a "home sweet home.")"
The tradition continues with porcelain sleeping pigs placed in homes
to bring happiness and good fortune.
I hope you enjoyed letting my fingers do the walking through the catalogs!
We have family visiting on and off the next several weeks.
My posting may be on and off, too.
I'll try to stop by and wave!
Wishing all of you well and a JOY filled weekend!
