FUN

I'm not exactly sure what heaven will look like. But it will probably look at lot like an Anthropologie.....at Christmas....with a Starbucks inside.

The boys and I went out for a morning of inspiration and coffee with my sis. A little window shopping, a little Anthro-ing, a little Starbucks.

(Someday I will stay up late enough at night and sneak over to Anthropologie so I can actually see the tiny interior design gnomes and fairies that flitter about creating those mind-blowingly creative window displays out of objects they scavenge from the trash. Those little guys are amazing.)
(window shopping at some local boutiques)


These carnival-esque letters caught my eye while window shopping and have inspired a lot of my plans for decorating the boys room. I really want to make a big "H" and "J" that actually light up. Nooot sure how I'll do it yet it will be awesome. And I'm still mulling over all these forts and feeling inspired. I want the boys room to be fun, magical, and creativity-inspiring. We'll see what we come up with!

Here are a few more vintage signs for your enjoyment.

So I've been reading some of your past blogs, and I actually know one of the Anthropologie fairies! She works for a store in the LA area, and she actually makes those things at her house! (all Anthropologies are decorated the same). Those styrofoam cups were in her house for weeks! And I think you have to get up early to see them... she got to work at 4:30 to decorate!
