in the window...

Anthropologie is by far one of my most favorite stores. I adore their clever displays and use of non-conventional and re purposed items. They have some of the most beautiful vintage furniture pieces... Did you ever see that show on the Sundance Channel - Man Shops Globe? I love it - Keith Johnson has my dream job! if you get a chance - you should really watch it. It is available on itunes if you want to catch up or if you don't get the Sundance Channel.

One of the best things about Anthropolgie is their window displays. (I even made a back drop for my wedding inspired by an Anthropologie Window).  Check out their Spring 2011 windows..

Dachshunds are great... Hopefully when the Mister and I find a house to buy and move out of the rental we can get one for ourselves... Can't wait. Check out these I found on Flickr.

such as..

During a presentation recently at work(in front of my entire company) - I said the phrase, "such as"...

In my mind - I immediately was reminded of this and wondered if everyone else thought the same?It was quite funny and I almost lost my composure.

french press...

I like coffee. 

I usually have coffee at work everyday, but on weekends I would usually go out and buy a cup somewhere - because I did not want another appliance on the countertop.  Let's be honest here - most coffeemakers aren't that attractive anyway.

My darling Cody (he does not like coffee - at all) suggested we get a french press.  I really like it - and you know what the best part is - Cody always makes it for me.  He is sweet.  He seems to like to use it.

This video shows the simplicity of the french press.. and I thought it was cool.
