Happy Furniture

So here's a little background to explain this non-wedding-related post:

I interned my senior year of college (Go Drake!) at Meredith Corporation, which publishes Better Homes & Gardens magazine. I worked for the Special Interest Publications division, mainly for Kitchen & Bath Ideas and it. was. awesome. I had so much fun working there! I got to help style photoshoots with the art director & choose products to feature every month – it was just a really cool place to work and for a creative person like myself, it was pretty perfect. They’d even have stock sales every few months were you could buy products used in photoshoots (that the vendor didn’t want returned) at a fraction of the cost!! Glorious.

But alas, the publications are based out of Des Moines, IA and if there was any chance of me getting out of that city, I had to do it right after I graduated. So, I came to Phoenix but still kept a catalog of vendors in my head of all the cool places I would buy things to outfit my home when I got settled. And with the fantastic Spring weather we’ve been having here, it made me think of these pieces from Archie’s Island. How fantastic is this outdoor furniture!? So cheery it makes me want to relax in the sun all day at my (imaginary) beach house, then snuggle up with a blanket & watch the sun set. I mean, their tagline is "Happy Furniture" - Agree?

I want it all!!
