Anthropologie, I asked her if it would be ok if we walked around the store and I took pictures of everything that she absolutely loved and then blogged about it. She was game.
As soon as we walked up to the store windows I was informed that me she didn't know how or what the item would be, but something "had to be" painted this color in her new room. She told me to take a picture, so I did. Smart kid, that is one gorgeous color. I might have to steal this idea.
the back of the window prop. A gorgeous turquoise paint.most gorgeous dress she ever saw". I didn't think til later to take a picture of her face when she looked at the price tag. Her expression was priceless.
giraffe stacked pots. She suggested that we might use them for her art supplies, TV and itouch remotes or even her flat iron and brushes. Pretty genius of her.
measuring cups. Seeing her get all excited over the baking items gave me a great idea on what to fill her Easter Basket with this year.
And she spied something for her sister, the owl lover. She's so sweet.
Of course while browsing the store, I happen to find a few things that made me say OOHHH.. like this cool orange iron chair.
GORGEOUS mirrored dresser. Sigh. I'll take 2 please.
bed of her dreams! Of course I rushed right over to see what that looked like (insert sarcasm) I walked up ready to ask "why do you have to be so so loud" when I saw her practically laying all over this bed. But do you blame her? It really is a pretty cool. A funky, fun and so "her" bed. And now it's the inspiration around the design for her room (I hope to see those quilts in the sale room soon). Not too shabby for a 12 year old.
And the last thing my 12 year old just loooooved was this phone. An old fashioned orange rotary phone.
Adorable. She picked it up pretending to make a call then turned me to and said the words I never thought a kid of mine would mutter. "Mom how go you use this thing, there are no buttons to push". Really? Can you believe I had to show her how to use a rotary phone? Picture Anne Sullivan teaching Helen Keller.
Technology really can be a bitch.
All that window shopping and what did I buy? A small bowl to use a salt holder.
and I love all $4 of it!
