lovely leafs | is that receipt paper?!

the first official 'lovely leaf' - woohoo!  i stumbled upon two different blogs in the last couple of days with related posts about this sort of thing and of course, found myself inspired.  so i wanted to share.  while my frugality gets the best of me and i very rarely make purchases here - i do gawk at the window and interior displays, drool over the clothing, and wander aimlessly through the home decor.  ladies and gentlemen - anthropologie.  more importantly - their wondrous ways of taking every day items (that some would even consider trash) and turning them into stunning displays.  who hasn't gone home after seeing the latest window update and sat and stared at the solo cups in your cabinet trying to figure out a way to make them a fabulous hanging art piece in your entry way.  i know, me too.  and more often than not - many of them use some kind of paper product - so i feel connected.  oh the creativity.  enjoy :)

paper chains are back!
