A long time a go I used to work for Anthropologie.
My friend Jen (We used to work together and run around the store taunting each other with hand puppets. It's a long story) is now in the UK setting up shop for Anthro EU.

It's a tough job, setting up one of the most beautiful retail chain stores from the States in London. Just an awful, awful job. Poor girl. I feel her pain. It's so dreadful that her work is even making her famous. It's a shame she's so unattractive (pic of her on top photo from RED magazine. See? Hard on the eyes, right?)

Well, it seems like there's another reason to celebrate the genius of the Anthro/Urban Outfitters brand besides my gorgeous and talented friend Jen. They purchased a 100-year old garden center in Pennsylvania and have turned it into a garden concept store! After the loss of Smith & Hawken I was wondering who was going to take on that job. Well, now I know and it's brilliant.

It's called TERRAIN at STYER'S and it not only looks beautiful, it's inspiring.

A great way to start the weekend---do some gardening.

Looks very cool.

You worked at Anthro? And taunted co-workers with hand puppets?

There's hope for me.

She is gorgeous. Do you only have good looking friends? Do they have to be famous as well? Just asking.
