Anthropologie's Window Displays - Spring 2013

With Earth Day coming up on Monday, here's a look at this season's windows at Anthropologie... they're loaded with handcrafted replicas of Mother Earth's finest produce.

Some store locations hosted crafting sessions in which the participants had a hand in helping to create the produce.

All images are from the Anthropologie Facebook page with the exception of the paper cups, which were photographed by Allison Patrick.

One last thing for this week (and what a week it's been - sad for Boston, sad for West, Texas)... a video that features the recent exhibit opening of paper cutter Ruth Mergi, who you might remember from this post. It's truly the next best thing to being there.

Have a great weekend... I hope you can spend some time outside enjoying the earthy goodness.

  5. Oh yes! Love Anthropologie & LOVE papier mache! Together that equals AWESOMENESS!!!! Thanks for sharing, Ann.

  6. I would love to know how she keeps her free form pieces standing on their own and what weight of paper she uses. Also, how many times does she create something, only to have it fall over, break, cut too deep etc. before she achieves the look she has in her mind?

    Absolutely beautiful work. I wish I could see it in person!!!

  7. LOVE the flower!
