Possibly the only thing more thrilling to me than junking is a visit to Anthropologie. It's such a great stop for inspiration and picture taking - If you can sneak them! Have you ever been caught taking pictures in a store? I have honed my sneaking skills and will share my secret: I walk straight in holding my camera in plain view, give the cashier a nod, stop right in front of her and get the lay of the land. I find a corner to start in and say, "Thanks so much! I'll start over here." If they question me at all, I totally cave and blame it all my blogfriends! =) Here's my collection of contraband photos smuggled from the borders of Chicago.
Everytime I go to an Anthropologie store, no matter which one it is, I think "Ooooo I could LIVE here!" So I thought I'd give it a whirl...
I made a makeshift ANTHROPOLLYGE in my own nest, a menagerie of display-perfect corners (Oh, come-on, you know you want to try it sometime). Pretending my tarnished crowns and tattered quilts might be adored by onlookers.
Somebody could poke their eye out!
