No prizes for guessing what I might have shopped for the most while I was on my holiday. It had to be stuff for the house!
This time in the US I discovered Anthropologie and it was love at first sight. If I had my way, I would have carted pretty much everything back from there but a baggage limit and of course a wallet limit allowed me to only sneak back a few things. So this blog is dedicated to my newly acquired prized possessions.
I have been looking for interesting dinnerware for a while. So far I've been using an assortment of ceramic plates, each a different colour, and it's worked alright. But when I saw these gorgeous whites with a worn off effect on the edges, I knew it would be perfect for me. They are elegant without being too stiff upper lippy, and they'll go well with any of my other colourful dishes. It's just the kind of change I wanted.
And here's a set of salad plates to off set my fleur de lys. The colour, the print, the text, everything is just perfect! It's gonna be hard for you to read what it says, so I have it typed alongside. I can't wait to pass these around the next time I have a table full of friends.

Last but not the least, here's another one of my cool picks this time from another store called West Elm which also had a whole lot of fabulous glassware. Three stackable bottles that become one! I'll let my pictures do the talking...
