One year blog anniversary & a little surprise!


I hope everyone is having a fabulous week.
We are on spring break and having some fun family quality time.

We went to visit Kings for some bowling and to my surprise
ANTHROPOLOGIE was right next door.

After bowling we stopped at Sugar Heaven aka candy store
which the kids were happy to fill their plastic bags
full of goodies.

Once that was done, it was easy to sneak over to Anthropologie.
Sat them on one of Anthropologie's beautiful couch and Mommy did her thing. Scanned the whole store and loved everything.

I could wander around there for hours.
There was so much to look at.

I had not been in one of their stores for a long time.

The store was decorated so beautifully.

Love all their lanterns, glass bottles set in wire baskets, plates, tea cups, jewelry, scarves, and so much more.

Many pretties including how they decorate the store.

The window displays were magnificent with gorgeous paper dresses on the mannequins, paper flowers everywhere on the walls, ceiling, and they even made them into lanterns.

It's my first blog anniversary this week and I was thinking how I could celebrate it with you.

So when I found the Anthropologie store I wanted to share what I found.

My inspiration came from these gorgeous paper flowers that were all over.

One year ago this week, I wrote my first blog post.

It has gone by so quickly.

I am having lots of fun but I still have alot to learn.

Thank you for following and writing your sweet comments.

I enjoy reading your blogs.

It takes me away for a little while.

I love looking at your beautiful updates to your homes.

One of many things I enjoy reading on a daily basis.

So I thank you for sharing your incredible and inspirational blogs.

Here is the giveaway and I hope you like it.....

Please leave a comment, become a follower, or share with your friends.

I always like finding out about new blogs.

I will let you know the winner by March 4th.

Thank you and to more fun decorating this year!

Take care and have a nice weekend,

One year, holy smokes! I really think you HAVE mastered the blogging thang! LOL You have such a nice way with your words and what you share with us all and it really does make my day to read what you have to say.
Anthro sounds just dreamy and if there is one here I will have to pay it a visit.
Well count me in for the give away, it looks fabulous!

Thanks for the tip on Overstock, I will check it out as I think they do ship to Canada.

Have a great break.

Happy Blog Anniversary to you! Wish one of our Anthros had a candy shop next door! Their displays are AMAZING! My husband thinks their clothes are too hippyish - that makes me laugh. Hope you are having a lovely weekend!

Hey again!
Thank you! Thank you!
Great tip on the clear glass bedroom lamp, we have a C&B in Canada about a 45 minute drive and they can order it in. It's is over double what I want to pay but at least I know I can get it for a lot less than the $250.00 ones I spotted elsewhere. They will order it in for me!

Your the best!
