Anthropologie - Feeding My Creative Spirit through Osmosis?

 These sweet creations are from Anthropologie in la Cantera, San Antonio, Texas. I visit them every chance I get! I wish I could afford them.

 I went crazy for this huge paper ostrich! My daughters and I love shopping at Anthropologie. Sometimes I have to ask them not to talk to me for a while so that I can just wander and look at all of the displays and digest it all.The creativity here truly does feed my soul. I love it. I am hoping I have absorbed some of it as I get ready to set up at the Comfort Antique Show this weekend.

 A closer view of another paper big bird - isn't she just wonderful!!

Comfort, Texas is a precious little town in the midst of the Texas hill country. It is about 20 minutes from Fredericksburg and about 40 minutes from San Antonio. I love setting up at this show for lots of reasons.  The show is an old fashioned antique show set up at the park in this quintessential small town. The local people support the show and promote shopping in their town as well as at the show. They prepare food and desserts to sell and usually provide lunch or dinner for all of the dealers setting up on Friday. This year we have all been invited to dinner in town at the after we finish set up.

Hope everyone who lives in the area will come buy the show this weekend. It is known for being a great country show full of true antiques -  early furniture, pottery, transferware, textiles, folk art......... the list goes on. Come see for yourself - you will be sure to have a great time and my even find a treasure to take home!


  1. Hello!
    I just had to tell you how much I enjoy reading your delightful blog!
    I moved from Texas 14 years ago but trek back annually to see family and friends
    the Hill Country is always one of my favorite places to visit(My parents live in Austin)
    and I have a dear friend who just recently moved to Comfort!
    I have not ever had an opportunity ti visit an Anthroplogie store(I know I am the ONLY one left in the world) So I really enjoyed these pics!
    I wish you much success this weekend at your show(I'm calling my friend to let her know)

  19. I so wish I could have been there to meet you, but I had to work. Hopefully, we can connect soon, I just know we'll have a million things to talk about!

  20. I've never been to an Anthropologie store before but would love to go to one someday!
    Thank you for sharing those amazing photos.

  21. I love those ostriches! I visited the Anthropologie store in Southlake, TX and saw them there. Wandering though this beautiful store is a form of free therapy for me, otherwise known as Poverty Therapy. I feel better every time I visit, after I shrug off the feelings of WANT and CAN'T AFFORD ANY OF IT! Thanks for posting! :-)
