As promised, some pictures of the embroidered Anthropologie pillow that I purchased last night on massive clearance. The plaid backside ain’t no accident.
Anthropologie generally has a multi-faceted effect on me. Initially, I feel instantly comforted by the aesthetic beauty of all that surrounds me. But then, inevitably, I actually start to become a little tweaked out by just how much every single item – down to an individual plaid doorknob – totally seems like it was MADE FOR ME. And only me. Though, intellectually, I realize that there a bajillion other people who feel exactly the same way. Which weirds me out even more, because I consider myself a stand-alone kind of girl. So then the Twilight Zone music starts to play and I find my temperature rising and my pace quickening and I just need to purchase something and get the eff outta there.
And so I did.
With this awesome pillow.

Welcome to the vintage brilliance of 26 Olive Street. Their old-school offerings and fabulously composed polaroid-style photos make me giddy (to an annoying degree, I’m sure). I bet they’ll have the same effect on you.
(all images borrowed from their Etsy shop)
For more great images, check out 26 Olive Street’s Flickr page and their blog. Oh, and you can get all their updates by following them on Twitter HERE.

Thanks to design*sponge for clueing me into The Sugar Monster’s Flickr page, I just spent the better part of my morning obsessing over her “ffffound favorites” photostream. Those photos containing books, in particular.
