Happy Friday friends! I’m so glad that the weekend is here, especially since I have fun plans to be with friends, shop, relax, bake and decorate my house. What’s not to love about a weekend like that!? I thought today I’d share my Anthropologie wish list with you since so many liked my Etsy art round up and West Elm list so much. :) It’s fun to create these shopping round ups despite how unrealistic they are since I’ll never ever own all of which I’m hoping for but still… these round ups are fun to do and for those of you who like my style, you may find something you’d not seen before. Remember when you were little and you’d look through the Sears Christmas catalog for toys? I’m dating myself here, but I remember the excitement I felt so clearly. I knew I’d never receive everything I hoped for but that was okay because daydreaming about it was fun. I guess I’ve just continued this pattern into my adult life. Can you relate?! I think you can, that’s why we all love to read blogs!
See anything that you can’t resist?
I talked about online shop Gretal Home last Spring but I have to write about them again because they have some unique new items that deserve the spotlight. Plus, I love pretty stuff and seriously, can this book light below be any sweeter? Nah. Not really.
Gretal Home is an inspiring online shop that is wonderfully curated. Whenever I visit, I am instantly charmed by their product shots, cohesive collection of goods collected from various sources around the world and their eye for quality products that are also beautiful. Be sure to check them out. My wish list includes the Distortion Candlestick, Joy Table Light, Large Vitriini in Clear Glass and Oak, Large Mocha Helene Vase, Gomitolo Oversized Knitted Clock in White and the Book Table Light. Spot anything you love? I think that distortion candlestick is my favorite though because it’s affordable but also very quirky. Imagine a bunch of them on a big wooden table in a dining room? They definitely make guests feel like they’ve had too much too drink before the cocktails are even poured!

Whew! We had quite a round-up of calendars this year, didn’t we? If you missed Parts 1-5, I’ve linked them below for your convenience. Here are some more beauties that I want to leave you with today as I go and pack for my vacation — I leave first thing in the morning with my husband and close friend for Istanbul, Turkey! I can’t wait! But first, here are the rest of my beautiful calendar picks for 2011!

I hope that you enjoyed my great, big calendar round-up for 2011 — and I’d like to thank everyone who submitted calendars to me via email to look at… I couldn’t get to everyone with over 500 submissions but I tried to get as many as possible in the round-up. Thanks, all!

Extra! Extra! I know, I’m dorking out on you but I still have more calendars that you can see, click, and possibly buy! And remember, you don’t have to stop with your home, use them to bring art and design to your office or give a favorite to your child’s teacher, your personal coach, a favorite friend, a calendar can be a great gift — especially those that contain beautiful imagery that you know will be loved and cherished by the receiver. Looking for more calendars? Here’s a batch to peruse… Enjoy!
Almost finished — Part 6 coming up soon will complete the decor8 annual calendar round-up for 2011. Stay tuned for the final batch — and then somebody (YOU) has some deciding to do! :)
