Which came first?

While perusing the latest Pottery Barn catalog today, I noticed several accessories (for sale and just photo props) that jumped out from the pages.

Some of these are obvious:

and others…..

You have to look real close…..

I love Pottery Barn more for their catalog design ideas than actually purchasing their merchandise (can we say $$$$). But, I wonder if the ordinary weekend crafter/home decorator/antique collector/junker didn’t come up with some of these ideas before Pottery Barn.

Wonder if PB is reading the blog world?

Do you think these accessories/design trends can be traced back to decorating blogs?

Which came first?

  5. That's a challenging question/thought.

    There is so much talent in blogland- I wouldn't be surprised if it all started here.

    I enjoyed visiting,
