After a long & exhaustive work week; a girlfriend & I went to have a lunch date; which later progressed to a window shopping date.. Which ultimately turned into a successful Anthropologie trip! To justify my purchases, I must say that almost every item picked up today was on sale (because, you know.. I really just saved money (; ) & surprisingly, none of the items were clothing pieces!
One of the treasures from this trip is this gorgeous Linda Fahey (a SoCal ceramicist no less!) stoneware plate from her Pacifica collection. Not only was it uniquely painted & glazed; it has such a wonderful weight & feel to it. Sturdy, durable yet still so elegant. Not to mention, the shape is faintly reminiscent of a water droplet.
& the underside!
After I checked out, one of the sales associates (who was helping my friend); excitedly told me that she has the very same plate that I just purchased & how much she adores it. We briefly chatted about how it was so subtly nautical & whimsical. So endearing! Despite Anthropologie’s large presence, they really do carry such unique pieces – always lovely things for sale there!
Another small item that I bought was this adorable little Molly Hatch ceramic basil plant marker. Okay, at first I thought it was a bit trivial but then I saw how marked down it was.. ($3! A steal!) As you can see.. This goes perfectly with my little basil plant (so far, she’s survived 3 weeks with me! I am impressed!)
Happy March! I daresay that I am increasingly preparing for springtime now (:
