in which she rambles

a valentine a day [ day two ]
vintage valentine 05

Did you see?? Anthropologie is putting out catalogs twelve times a year!!! *dies* I’m addicted, but not just because they carry such pretty and drool-worthy clothes that are ever so artsy, but the catalogs are just enourmous sources of visual inspiration to me. Beautifully photographed and composed. I literally have a little stack of them next to my bed to flip through in the evenings... Its sad, isn’t it?

After much hunting, whining to myself at the lack of a good magazine selection at any of the local bookstores, and getting ready to just give up, I finally procured a copy of the March issue of Romantic Homes. One of my favorite bloggers, Alicia Paulson of Posie, was featured in this issue! Its a lovely, color-saturated walk through her amazing home. Seriously drooling over the creativeness pictured! Just looking at the sun-soaked photos lifts me right out of my mid-winter doldrums. If you need something nice and pretty to keep on your nightstand, be sure to pick this issue up (not to mention there are a lot of other nice things in here too!).

LOL, I think if my husband and I were ever to divorce (we won't, btw, we're like glue), it would be over catalogs! I also treasure catalogs like expensive magazines. Do you ever remember those J Peterman catalogs of about 10-15 years ago? (Of course not, I find it so hard to remember that you're like 8 years younger than me, C!!!)? I stole those every time my parents got them and I still have them. I sometimes go weeks where I read nothing BUT catalogs. It's a sickness!!!

This valentine is so sweet! I'm a sucker for anything with paper lace on it. I checked out the online version of the Anthropologie catalogue ... heavenly!

I love the Anthropologie catalogs too! I collect them, then when I go to the thrift shop, I try to approximate the clothing and decore.

And thanks for posting the Valentines. They are very sweet.
