As you may or may not know, I have a small obsession with knickknacks. I probably have way more than necessary, but sometimes I can’t help myself. And lately people and brands are so darn creative, the cuteness level has risen to an all new high. Right?
Well, I am a complete sucker for buying objects that I probably don’t need. There I was, minding my own business on Pinterest this morning, when I saw this image.
First, I’m a huge Wizard of Oz fan. Huge. (Remember my Ode to Oz shelf display?) Anyway, that immediately drew me in. Secondly, the cover art was fabulous. The chalkboard-inspired drawing is beyond beautiful. At first, I thought it was just a print. So I clicked in hopes that this was something I could actually buy and that it would not cost me an arm and a leg.
I was directed to Anthropologie and was delighted to see that it’s a book, actually one in a three-part series. Amazing, right? Want to know the best part? The books cost $7.99 each. Which is an awesome price for a book, and given that it’s from Anthropologie, it’s kind of a steal.
I ended up ordering all three books. I’m certain they will look amazing styled on a coffee table or in a bookcase. Maybe they will make up for the loss of my chalkboard wall.
UPDATE: Thanks to a fab IBC reader, I discovered that the cover of these books were designed by the fabulous Dana Tanamachi. You can check out her work here. Her name my sound familiar too. She has a line at Target and helped to create a cover for Oprah Magazine!
Do you have a chotchkies obsession like me? What new knickknacks are you loving these day?
