I’ve featured the mouthwateringly beautiful, circa-1897 Fell-Van Rensselaer building at 18th and Walnut 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 inside, I always enjoy seeing the window displays.  Here’s one I saw on my last visit.  It works well for my “Still Life” entry for this week.

(Caveat: In case I remembered incorrectly, it’s a great display, no matter where it was, and my comments about the Anthropologie building and displays still stand.)

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!
