Anthropologie, I Hear You.

Are you calling my name? Because if you are, I will come running. I could pretty much eat up Anthro for brunch and be filled with all of the fabulous style I can handle!

 

I mean, really. Who could resist a dress like this for spring? So sunny. So fabulous!

 

…With this belt…

Ooh, a floral maxi with architectural details around the neckline? Yes, please! I’ll take two.

Maybe we need something fantastic for the home? Eggs look so much better in this ceramic egg crate. Love!

Okay. I am done. It’s all over, now. I can’t imagine a more perfect place to nap. Oh, the ruffles, the colors, the textures! Dreamy.

I hope you all enjoyed my trip to Anthro-land. I know I did! Have a great week everyone.

 

XOXO, Elizabeth

Showcase: Teal Book Love

I actually had this post in the works for my Saturday Showcase, but was out of town and had trouble with the internet therefore, no post. Bummer! So without further ado, enjoy a little taste of Saturday, today!

Many Etsians (Etsy shop owners) have come up with a pretty neat way of grouping several vintage books together by color and calling them an “instant collection.” This is so handy if you are looking for a great accent to go with the color scheme in a certain area of your home. Teal everything is all the rage right now, and I think I’ve caught the bug.

Take a look at the great books I am currently swooning over.

Sunday Showcase: You are just my Type.

What writer, history buff, or vintage collector doesn’t love a great typewriter? I do, I do! I love to imagine what was typed on these babies in their heyday. A love letter or professional proposal? A thesis or fantastical story? The possibilities are endless, and so is the inspiration I find when I consider the colorful past attached to beautiful vintage items like these.

I have my eye out for a great little typewriter, preferably mid-century modern, to put in my office/craft room. Just the thought of it makes me giddy.

An ideal spot to discover all things vintage typewriter related is Etsy. Here are a few items that I found on my most recent search. Enjoy!

Oh, what I wouldn’t give to have a PINK typewriter on my desk. Yes!

DANCE in black - Faux typewriter key thumbtacks  {DANCE-typewriter keys by Repurposed Antiques}

I adore all things dance inspired and have always thought that watching a person type feverishly, much like a pianist playing their heart out, is like watching a synchronized ballet performance on the keys. Quite lovely if you ask me.
