i decided a while ago to abandon monthly "catalog day" posts for two reasons: 1) one of my favorite things to do is sit with a sharpie and a cup of coffee and thumb through a catalog. it's a fun and peaceful five-minute escape. but blogging about what i circled ended up making it feel like work instead of fun, and it went from peaceful to stressful. i only want to blog if it's fun...and that wasn't, so yeah. 2) sometimes i direct deposit my catalogs into the trash without reading them, in order to help me be content with what i already have. i've been doing that the last few months and it's been almost as fun as pretending i'm going to call the 800 number at the bottom of the page and place an order so big it would make beyonce's gold pants seem downright reasonable.
but the pottery barn christmas catalog came this week...and call me basic, but i love that thing. faux fur and cozy knits and stone fireplaces and snowy trees. it's the best kind of escape, and there was no way it was going straight to the trash. we were going to have our five minutes. figured i'd pass those five minutes along to you...because i have to admit, it is pretty fun to geek out with you.
so. do these things make you want to bomb your house with fur and plaid and twinkle lights, or is it just me?
enjoy your weekend!
