How Anthro is lovely

The Fashionista has finished her summer internship. It resulted in a job with a sister store.~Woo hoo!~ I have to be the proud mom and show you a few of her efforts. Although I must apologize for the quality of the photos. I think it has something to do with the model featured in this shot.



Why do I think it is this particular person? He left evidence that he used mom's camera and now the camera is not working properly . Hmmm.



Ok, back to the first shot. I am so proud of my girl. She learned to use a drill and a saw ~as well as a hammer. She painted and helped construct the arch of orange sticks featured in the first shot. Here is a close up. Holy sticks Batman!

Each and every lantern was hung by my girl.



She also worked with maps and created street signs.



Wall of moss anyone?


More maps and globes. I now have such a greater appreciation for what goes into store displays.


Love truly is in the details.



Of course I had to take a moment to shop while I was there. Sweet Boy entertained himself as well.

"R" you "Quite" talented? I think so. Well done my girl.

In other news we had an unwelcome intruder trying to share our swimming space. My hero, Mr. Decor, tried to reason with the scaly jerk and let him know that he was the only man allowed in the pool with me.


Alas, the thought of other waters was to much for Lucifer the lizard and he drowned himself.



Please stop by the Creative Home Expressions blog. The uber talented Kathy recently asked me five fun questions.

Fantastic displays by the Fashionista! I always love going into Anthro for the displays as much as for the shopping. I'm not so sure about that lizard though.

My sister used to work as the display coordinator (or whatever it's called) at Anthropolgie, and her displays were always so fascinating. I remember helping her roll a bunch of felt balls and tying pieces of felt together to make felt chandeliers one year.
Neat displays! Thanks for sharing.

I love the lanterns all hung like that. So very cool!

Oh, goodness a lizard in the pool! But, at least, it wasn't an alligator!

Awww, your girl is such a talented young woman! I love her displays. I don't love the lizard, however! Eeek!

There's no Anthro store near where I live, but I visited one in Boise this summer. I loved the displays and kudos to your daughter for her designs which you showed. You must be so proud of her.

What a great job your little girl did!
I also had to tell you that your son's lego creation stopped my six yo boy in his tracks with an exclamation of, "That's cool!"
Have an awesome day, friend! :)

Love the pictures. Yeah I don't think I'll ever get over the loss of my mom. She was everything to the family and since she's been gone, I'd say there is no family. It's broken. 36 years for you, I can't even imagine how you must feel or felt growing up. I'm so sorry, but it's probably made you the strong person you are today, and a better more attentive MOm. I try to always see the bright side of it all. My mom is no longer here suffering. She is with her Mom and Dad happy. I try to not be selfish, but it's hard!

Linda said...

Love the photos and your daughter is very talented just like her Mom. Hey, I think lizards are cute, lol. :)
