At West End

So yesterday I received a mini-catalog in the mail. I don't know about you but as much as I enjoy shopping online, I get a little giddy when catalogs arrive in my mailbox. There's something tangible and invigorating when thumbing through the pages of Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware or even Williams-Sonoma. They take me to fantasy land.

Ever heard of At West End? Well, I hadn't. So I wonder how they got my name and address? It was specifically addressed to "Jenn (my last name which shall remain anonymous)" - Most mail I receive comes to "Jennifer (my last name)". So when I see "Jenn" - It feels like they know me.

And I have decided that I am just fine with At West End being personable.

Take the object below for example. I don't smoke, but a fine cigar right now sounds quite lovely. Yes, please.

I've always loved frogs, not the real ones. And I do love wine, the real kind - This makes me heart smile.

Now this is a fun concept. Not sure I'd purchase real artichokes but it sure is pretty. Maybe some oranges or grapefruits. Or what about stryrofoam balls covered in twine or moss?

And who could resist these cute widdle birdies?

Hi Jenn - Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and becoming a follower. I really appreciate it! Oh my gosh - I've never heard of this catalog either! Everything you highlighted looks really cute. I also get giddy when I open my mailbox and find a catalog (or 3 or 5!). My family actually makes fun of me b/c I like them so much! Looking forward to following your blog!
