Sofa surfing....

Still feeding the cold and starving the fever... or is it the other way around? My brain is fuzzy (let's blame it on being sick)... While bundled up on the sofa, I spent some time browsing the Urban Outfitters' website. And even though UO is geared toward younger, hipper women (than me!), I always manage to find some pretty cool stuff that I wouldn't turn down if it arrived on my doorstep!

So come and browse with me... You're far enough away that you won't catch my cold :)

(All photos from Urban Outfitters' website)

How cool are these curtain tie-backs? Gorgeous... They come in several colors, but I like these best...


This window treatment is stunning in its simplicity... Love it! (I think the glass knob above would also work as a tie-back!)...


Here's a fun quilt... It has lots of my current favorite colors, and lots of other colors that could easily become favorites...


This faux distressed wood floor mat would be perfect next to the bed.. or in the kitchen... or the bathroom...


And isn't this the cutest little bird pillow? I like the green background.


I love these pink tumblers... I'm already thinking of summer... pink lemonade....


Love this cheerful shower curtain. And I'd really love for my bathroom to have those floors and for my tub to have claw feet!!! (This is a fantasy post, so I might as well shoot for the moon!)


And I just thought this little swan planter was adorable... I can think of so many uses, but right now I'm looking for someplace to hide my SOS pad in the kitchen, so this would make a very fancy SOS pad holder!!!
Being sick is no fun, but the Internet sure takes a lot of the sting out of it...
All of the above items can be found on the Urban Outfitters' website under the Apartment heading...

Well my dear, I hope you are not staying on the computer to long. You need to get to bed and rest, rest and then rest some more!

Though I do love those things you found!

Sure hope that nasty little cold bug leaves you soon!

Hugs,
Joanne

Hope you're feeling better this morning... I like to "sofa shop" too. There is ONE block in that UO quilt that has really inspires me. It's the brown one with the white leaves. I might just do that same thing in reverse on my soon to be made drapes. Just a border of brown stenciled leaves on white?
Simple, but nice. Thanks for sharing your shopping spree!

I'm doing laundry today (I know, yuck!) As soon as I fold the next load of towels - the dryer is calling me right now - I'm going right on over to Urban Outfitters...I love all the things you posted...didn't even know they sold good stuff like that...thought it was clothing! Thanks for the heads-up on UO!

Hugs and Well Wishes headed your way!!

AHHHH-Chew!! You ARE contagious! :) Just kidding--you need a little silliness to cheer you up.

I love every time you pointed out in UR--especially that cool floor mat and those PINK tumblers!

Get well!! Dana

I have got to take a look at that magazine! Not that I can buy any of it, but you're right, there is some great stuff! I especially like that swan too.

I can't believe how much snow you got! That's New England for you though, 67 degrees one day, then a few days later, a foot of snow! I'm surprised it all missed Ohio.

I'm so behind on your posts! I really do love that pretty little lamp with the gorgeous blue shade, and that parakeet is precious! Love the shop you bought it at too.

I hope you're feeling better!

That's so funny--I use to shop there when I lived in Santa Monica and was like 13 years younger. And now my niece told me they will be opening a new one up over here. And that they have great internet sales. I had no idea. I love the items you picked.

I enjoyed going to UO with you. You picked out some beauties. I may have to go check out that floor mat that looks like wood. I loved it. Hope you get to feeling better soon. laurie

I hope this note finds you feeling better today. I checked out the great stuff at UO...ordered their catalog, too! WOW~you were right, they do have some very nice things...I would have never guessed that they sold anything buy clothing. I found that they compare to Anthropologie, don't you think?

I'm going to check back tomorrow and hope to find you feeling better, sweetie.

I hope you are feeling better by now (Monday). I loved the photo of the crystal knob tiebacks. I loved them so much that I went to the Urban Outfitters website and bought the set of 2 clear crystal knobs.

They will look great in my newly purchased condo. Thanks for sofa shopping!
