Pier 1 Imports
I love Pier 1...LOVE it!
I love their eclectic look in merchandise, walking through the stores themselves, seeing their flier's arrive in my mailbox.
This catalog of their fall sale came in the mail a couple weeks ago and in my decluttering quest of the past few days, I finally took the time to look through it.
(I would like to take this moment to say that I don't feel I am a busy person. I just tend to stick paperwork in the buffet drawer and walk away from it to enjoy later. And then get freaked out when I have a full drawer. And feel like I need to rip through things instead of sitting down with a lovely magazine or catalog and a cup of tea.)
But I did sit down to enjoy this catalog with a cup of coffee.
And actually laughed out loud at some of these photos! You see, Pier 1 seems to be taking a step back in time and is using the same sort of things that we love as decorating tools! There were tons of owls, a very cool plaid round cooler that they used as a prop, lots of kitsch poking out here and there. I know if I was having a hard time finding my vintage owl decor, that this is where I would be shopping at, hands down. And the store itself is just so enjoyable to look through!
As for magazines, I still subscribe to Country Living but that is about it. The passing of Country Home and ME's Home Companion still make me weep.
What shelter magazines do you love? What catalogs give you tingles when they arrive in the mail?
