Christmas at Anthropologie

Do you have a shop that you like to visit ... just for the sake of inspiration?  

I'll admit that it takes a lot to impress me, but there is one store that does it every single time.  Therefore, when I get within five miles of any of their shops my car knows just what to do.  If you've never visited an Anthropologie all I can say is... "treat yourself" because their creativity will speak to all five senses.

Anthropologie in Southlake, Texas

When I visited a local store a few weeks ago, I was delighted by this full size paper mache reindeer and bird in flight.  I just stood there amazed, wondering what kind of mind thinks up these glorious displays!

Even their street side windows were spectacular... at first I thought this design was painted on, but it's like a giant scherenschnitte.  
Who does this?

I'd love to see the Anthropologie elves in action...
and maybe let some of their elfish talent rub off on me.... ":o)  

I'll admit that I don't always just look when I visit Anthroplogie...I would say that Buzz hates it when I go, but he's my equal when it comes to finding little treasures there.

We Both Love It!

ps:  If you follow my facebook page, I know you've already seen some of these pictures, but it was worth sharing them again.  


  1. I love Anthropologie, too! We have one within a 6 minute drive of our house so I go a lot for inspiration or to get a special gift -- they really have a good selection nice things for under $15.00. It really feels like a mini-vacation to just go and look around -- like shops at the beach or something, since they are so different from Target or Macy's or whatever -- I swear I feel restored when I go! :-)

  2. My goodness, I will have to take a closer look at Anthropologie, I guess I didn't realize it was such a treasure. Thanks!!

  3. I love it too! I'm going to have to look up where the closest one to me is. That reindeer is amazing! I want him! :)

  4. We don't have one anywhere within driving distance. I am so jealous- xo Diana

  5. I have never been to an Anthropologie. Only heard about it.

  6. It's been a long time since I was in an Anthropologie. There aren't any near here. I had to look up the word scherenschnitte.

  7. Don't you just love that store? So many amazing things. I'd like to just sit back and watch the designers as they think up their awesome ideas. Mimi

  8. Geneva, my brother lives in Southlake and I go in that store EVERY single time I visit him. In fact...I really like that whole scene...but that is my most favorite store for sure! My hubby gets so impatient with me because I go around and around and around in circles!

  9. Their stores are just full of stunning displays! Something for everybody. I walk around in a trance, but I do that at Pottery Barn and Williams Sonoma, too. Wouldn't it be great to be a stylist in one of these places?


  10. Their displays are always mind-boggling. I don't know how they keep coming up with new, brilliant ideas, but they do.


  11. Hi Geneva,

    We don't have an Anthropologie store near us, but I would love to visit one! If you find one of their elves, please send them my way :-) I'm glad you had a good time window shopping.

  12. One of my favourite stores too, unfortunately we still do not have them here in Sydney yet, so will have to live vicariously through you. How impressive the paper mache goat is!
