The PB is taking a break from her usual ponderous, high-brow-intellectual musings to show you a selection of pretty things from the spring collection at Anthropologie. I love these fresh colors, vintage prints, and graceful designs. It looks like we're heading toward a beautiful spring.... one of these months. In the meantime, I hope these will brighten your day.
