Catalog Browsing

November 20, 2014 at 5:10 AM 5 comments

I’m writing this post during the girls nap time to let you know that my mind has lost its way lately.  It may be due to living with an almost two year old.  She was a puddle of tears this morning because she couldn’t wear the wooden shoe form I have sitting on our bookshelf.

I thought I pulled off a major accomplishment by dressing Grace today, instead of just putting her from one set of PJs to the next, but I ended up dressing my three month old in business casual.

And just moments ago, I thought I’d make myself hot chocolate to blog with.  Sounds amazing, right?  I then grabbed a coffee cup from the cupboard and microwaved it for one minute, completely empty.  I’ll just file that under things not to admit on the internet.

So, dear, beloved, thanks for sticking around, readers – I present to you stuff I like from catalogs we receive lately because Josie loves looking through them with me; she thinks they are picture books.


Boden Padded Parka


Soho Ankle Boot


Diaper Tote


Pheasant Print Pillow


Nordic Tree Basket


Rose Gold Garland

Tempting, right?  You send me a catalog, Josie and I will sit down, read it and ooh and ahh over it, no matter what.  I’m talking to you, Hammacher Schlemmer.

    Wait – this is a Belchers/Rothwell/Imwalle gene. Nico and Luke are addicted to catalogues. (As are J and I, truth be told.) Have I ever taught you my catalogue game? It’s like Death is Not an Option; you each have to choose one thing that you HAVE to have from each spread. Take turns going first. Works best with Land’s End or Sky Mall. When I found out how much J loved the game, I realized I had to marry him. (Also, I will die if I don’t own that pheasant pillow.)
