Windowshop Wednesday with The Katie Chronicles

My immensely talented and hilarious friend Katie, of The Katie Chronicles, is starting up a new Link Up series and I am happy to join her! Especially when the first topic is the droolworthy Crate & Barrel.

Here’s a fun fact about me and my girl Katie. We’ve never actually met in person! We became friends about two years over The Knot while we were planning our weddings and have been friends since!

Today our mission is to share our Crate & Barrel shopping wishlist:

Dear Cucina dining table,

You are so pretty. I love your taupe gray neutrality and your pretty crossed legs. You are a cross between a picnic table and a Parsons desk, rustic yet modern. I would like to own you, but paired with rustic espresso wood benches, not with the chairs shown.

Love, Kat

Dear Jack table lamp,

I love your squatty bulbous of the base and the geometric pendant shade. The song “Fat Bottom Girls” must be written about you. Except your name is Jack, and not Jill. My mistake. You do, however, make my rockin’ world go round and you would look great in any room!

Love, Kat

Dear Belize striped napkin ring,

I am officially twitter patted with you. I love your chunkiness and bright striped colors. You are friends with everybody. Cinco de Mayo party? Check. Summer Picnic? Check. Use it with white dishes? Check. Use it with green dishes? Check. The beauty of bright multi-colored things like you that most people don’t realize is that you go with everything! Please be my friend.

Love, Kat

Dear Table-in-a-bag, picnic chairs and Carmen picnic tablecloth,

Don’t tell the others, but you are my favorites.  I’d love to take you to concerts in the park or a picnic on the beach. Your sunset yellow cushions on the chairs scream summer and you are bringin’ down the funk with those sexy multi-color stripes.

Love, Kat


The thing I love most about window shopping is it’s free!
