pottery barn...


i will admit i LOVE looking at pottery barn catalogs. at times it is for inspiration - colors, styles, etc and at other times it is to say "who lives in this house?" i have scanned a page of the latest catalog to share with you all. first of all i LOVE LOVE LOVE the way the things are arranged in this room but what really cracks me up

are the things listed on the bulletin boards and on to-do lists. in case you can't see the one on the blackboards, here is what some of the "to-do" things say:

  1. surf camp july 2-11
  2. clam dinner at murphy's
  3. comfirm flight
  4. sunset picnic with so-and-so

so where are the lists for:

  1. do laundry
  2. pay the bills that are late!
  3. pick up after the kiddos

why is it seem like the PB life is just full of country club dining, golf lessons and windsail cruises?but i guess that is the "life" they are trying to sell - none the less it works doesn't it b/c i am reading it. but i also like to sneak looks at what DVDs they have on the DVD racks they ar selling and what books they have on their book shelves and i will say the books they show do not match the same lifestyle as the DVDs on the racks - so the next time you get a PB catalog - check it out!

They get me too Caroline!! Although, I could happily live in the world of Pottery Barn. My den IS Pottery Barn - but the rest of the house is reality!!

totally agree!! living a 'pottery barn' life seems like it would be pretty carefree!

that's funny. rather than looking like the home in those catalogs, my home is filled with pottery barn catalogs.
