I was in Anthropologie this weekend and saw these wooden cutouts by Lovi, they had the bird and the pig (which I got). Online you can find hearts, eggs, trees and even reindeer! They are all so impossibly cute and lifelike which is saying a lot considering they are made from single sheets of wood.

I get so much joy from reading all of your comments and it gives me an opportunity to discover new blogs each and everyday. I find myself so enthrawred and litterally unable to keep up! It’s so exciting to know that there is so much to be discovered each time I sit down to my computer.

My latest find is the delightful Grate Full Day blog. Lindsey stole my heart with her recent post about Anthropologie’s summer Dip Dyed Windows. As most of you know by now I have a thing for Anthropologie, a crush as it were. Their collective genius is endless and this seasons merchandising is no exception. From the Anthropologie’s Facebook Page:

” Each is a joyful tribute to summer color—from pineapple gold and purple basil to crustacean red and saltwater teal. Each, too, is a testament to the passion and drive of our visual team—from scouring thrift stores for fabric scraps to dip-dying and drying, it was quite a process.”

I was doing a photo search at work yesterday and came across this fantastic invitation to Anthropologie’s Press Preview Invitation. I consider this a lucky find and it’s days like these that remind me of what a fantastic job I have. How many professions require you to browse photography and work of your peers for hours looking for inspiration and examples?!

But I digress, this invitation had me at Anthropologie! I am a huge fan, as I’m sure most of you are, and it’s the simplicity and uniqueness that makes them stand out again and again. This Invite by Dan Gneiding is no exception. I adore the clothing reference while still maintaing a formal invitation quality. Be sure to visit Dan’s site, Gray Hood, for more of his great design work.



Anthropologie Cotton Bag

Friday, January 9th, 2009

Anthropologie is one of my favorite stores to visit. They have the most amazing window displays and the best visual merchandising of any store I can think of. It doesn’t hurt that they also have adorable housewares and clothes!

On a recent visit I noticed a basket at the register of colorful cotton bags. Inside was a list of benefits for their member program. Though I had no intention of getting a member card, the sales rep saw me drooling over them and let me have one. It’s something I’ve kept on my desk ever since, so I thought I’d share.

Not exactly sure what the purpose of the perforation is but I like it! Adds another textural element to an otherwise boring document. Brilliant!

It’s pieces like this that really make Anthropologie stand out. I sincerely appreciate that they take the time to think about all the details.
