as she bounced around the yard with the kids ..

.. then it was time to come in ..

..  just look at those paws,
too cute,
 all covered in snow ..

What's New at Anthropologie?

.. of course there is a good supply of wonderful aprons
that look like a well put together outfit ..

.. so you're thinkin'
those are great looking spools of vintage trims
take a second look
these lovely spools are actually candles in disguise !
and yes, the trim is real ..
 ( bought one but may be back for more )

.. had to try on this tweed coat with fur collar ..
oh, so vintage with its bracelet sleeves
this coat will make you feel like a starlet from the 50's 

.. how amazing does this settee look with its multi colored crocheted throw ..
take it for a test drive in the dressing room area at Anthropologie on El Paseo

.. ready for gift giving ..
any of these lovely soaps, lotions or candles 
would make lovely hostess gifts 
this holiday season ..

.. a work of Art ..
who wouldn't want to sit like a Princess in this chair !
