Change

 First off....... let me just say this.......... the above picture was taken in my favorite store in existence.
The first person to leave a comment naming that store....... will win something.
I don't know WHAT....... but I'll dig up something.

Okay.... about change........... if that store changes it's entire style... I don't know what I'll do.
But I'll do something! I would be very upset.

So a couple of weeks ago I find myself driving home after staying at my daughter's house a few nights. Not often am I in the middle of Houston (big clue to name of store...right?).... with no deadline on where I have to be......... so I exited the freeway and headed to the part of town I was made to live in.... but, alas, that has never happened....


 Don't you love the lamp in the above photo!!!!
I may need that in my new house!
Someone take note!!!
It's at Pottery Barn (which is not my most favorite store.... but I do like it.)

 About change........ I had heard that Restoration Hardware had changed.
hahahaha
That's an understatement!!!
There is really no reason for me to ever go in there again!!!
 But I do like their furniture......  if I win the lottery.... which I didn't last weekend....
 Isn't this nice!? I won't even be getting the side table!!!

Okay........... I did find this store......... yeah, I hadn't been in this neighborhood in months....
It's called Mecox Gardens!
Oh Boy! I loved it!
  I won't be getting much in there either...
 but at least they have a few things I might could possibly get....

See the wire sculpture on that wall?
I might need that!
I might could even MAKE it!!!
Someone should make it and put in on Pinterest with a tutorial, please!
Click to make larger.....

... I seem to be in a year of change...
You know those things happen in cycles.
Mine are 1952, 1962, 1972, 1984 (resisted).
(I need to look up my 2002 &  l992 calendar and see what I'm not remembering.)
Do you have a change cycle?

more to come.....

Now you have to tell what the proposed changes are all about at Anthro! "Westheimer"...logged many a mile on that long stretch of road back in the day! And how fun that you got to spend some days with your two favorite girls! A blessed Easter to you and yours!

I was going to guess Anthropologie! There is no better place for style!

I was going to guess Anthropologie, too -- but not so specifically as the street! Looking forward to hearing more about your changes. I sometimes have real problems with change (despite being at a workshop our entire staff was required to take last week on adapting to change...). Hope you do it better than I!

So nice of you to take us shopping with you :)

I would have guessed Anthro too...you always remind me I 'need' to go to ours

Fun post Lady!
oxo
p.s. never charted change around here in cycles...but I bet there is a pattern?

Funny that you say that because last year there were huge changes in my life but this year everything is the same. Those stores are awesome. I love Rest.Hard's lights!

Happy Easter chicky!

Hey Stranger...I thought Anthro also but that Peggy is quick and in the know! I don't like the new Restoration at all! Love many of their things (used lights, knobs, rugs in my bath redo), but that store make me feel like a serf in from the country. Will go to the Memorial City location if I need anything, if it is still the same. Miss seeing you!
