West Elm + Etsy

February 27th, 2012

This weekend seemed to fly by quicker than ever and I ended up asleep in front of the Oscars last night, completely exhausted. I had a fantastic weekend though, on Saturday I treated myself to some retail therapy by making a special trip to West Elm – it’s over an hour away – but I made a trip due to Victoria’s announcement that there was a West Elm + Etsy event, so I met up with my blog buddy Courtney from Courtney Out Loud. We mingled with a few Etsy sellers and had a lot of fun checking out all the new goods in the store.

I’m loving their recycled glass bottle collection this year, all those watery blues and greens look fantastic in a group together.

It’s been around awhile, but I’m still loving the graphic bull’s eye pillow and that carved wood side table together. That multi faceted wood ball is such a fantastic decorative object but I can’t find it online so now I wish I’d grabbed one at the store.
