Ok, I admit it...I have a book fettish ;) I really do and my Mom is truly concerned and has been for years, lol.
I just cant help myself! I see a beautiful book and I have to have it! Especially if it's a design or decorating book or a cookbook or a self-help book...ok, there are lots of books I cant seem to live without....I LOVE BOOKS!
And dont even get me started on vintage books, Lordy, Lordy, I can really go nuts collecting vintage books(that I never read but have to own because they are so wonderful and someone needs to own them, right?) I can hardly pass up a classic when at an estate sale...what a wonderful treasure!
In addition to Barnes & Noble and Amazon, two of my FAVORITE places to shop, I also love Anthropologie for their cute and clever selection of books. I always seem to leave with a book when I am shopping there...and a hand lotion from Lollia
and a candle from Capri Blue, Volcano being my favorite fragrance...delicious!
"NEW" Mercury Glass Jar
And then there are the books through which I could browse for hours...and usually do, truth be known. Anthropologie is a "must see" on my holiday shopping list. I love it this time of year, dont you? Well, I love it all year round, but the holiday season is always really special. Dont you just love their ornaments? The cutest I have ever seen. And I love that they have a nostalgic, handmade, vintage look about them. Just dreamy.
Did you see what just happened here...it's just like in the store, I get sidetracked by all the loveliness, lol.
Felt Arm Chair
Felt Madeline Chair
(I had to include these felt chairs, afterall, I am a designer!)
And when I finally make it around to the books, lol, I am in pure bliss :) I can browse through their selections for what seems like all afternoon. Glorious recipes and decorating "how to's", gardening, more decorating and there is always something French and always a book about a celebrity! Last year I bought my daughter "Just Being Audrey" for Christmas and she loved it!
My Favorite Book Pics this Season from Anthropologie are as follows and I can hardly wait to own each one of them...well, maybe not all of them.
French Flair: Modern Vintage Interiors
Kit Kemp: A Living Space
The Gospel According to COCO CHANEL
The Elements of Style
At My French Table
How is a girl supposed to choose? They are all so wonderful and pretty ;)
