Welcome to 2016, a new year for all of us!  In Philadelphia at Rittenhouse Square, Anthropologie runs a store that, incredibly, used to be someone’s home.  Can you imagine having this circle of stained glass in the roof of your home?  I haven’t bought anything there, but we often go just to wallow in the beauty of the space itself and the decorating is gorgeous as well.

May your 2016 be filled with blessings and beauty!

    What a gorgeous ceiling, Janet. I like the way it darkens toward the edges.
    A great start to the new year!

  2. Amazing!!! A perfect way to start the year – with color. Have a very Happy start, Janet.

    Before looking closely and reading your post, I thought the stained glass would be in a church. But in someone’s home? That is awesome.

  4. Astounding image , great way to start the Happy New Year!

  5. Happy New Year, Janet. Hope yours was a nice one.

    We had a campfire and a few of our kids and their girl/boy friends over. Very nice.

    Enjoyed the stained glass shot. We have a few stained glass window frame pieces hanging from the tops and inside of our windows around our home as a decorative window treatments.

    Wishing a good year ahead, Randy.

    • It was a quiet, but good one and today we’re having a bowl game blowout! All the best to you and yours as well, Randy. One of these days, we’ll meet in person.

    Absolutely stunning! We don’t have an Anthropologie anywhere near – a mixed blessing!

    Beautiful. The artwork in that…

  8. Amazing. I would have spent all day on a divan just looking up at it. A happy New Year to you and your family too.

  9. Have a good 2016 full of wonderful moments you can share with us via your can 😊

    This would be a cool place to go. The beautiful ceiling looks more like a church or museum than a home or shop! 🙂

  18. I don’t think I’d get a lot done there and I’d have a permanent pain in my neck from staring up at it. Beautiful. 🙂

    • I know, Judy. I’ve visited the store several times because I’m gobsmacked by the overall beauty. The space is a feast for the senses and imagining it as my home is beyond my brain’s capabilities.


  19. This is extraordinary! Beautiful 🙂

  20. Unbelievably gorgeous, Janet! Cheers to a new year filled with beauty to you!

  22. […] in Philadelphia (Rittenhouse Square), or as most refer to it, “the Anthropologie building”, before.  It’s hard for me to fathom that it was a home at one time! Even if I don’t go […]
