Anthropologie Local Event: Found, Free & Flea with Tereasa Surratt

You know she’s a friend when she signs you up for a local event at Anthropologie without even asking.  She knows me and knows that a night sub-titled “Curating the Past” is right up my alley.  Yes, this is my dear friend Vaneesha and she is to thank for the very fun, very unique experience at Chicago’s flagship Anthropologie.

Frankly, any trip to Anthroplogie is truly a remarkable, inspiring experience.  But this time it was all of that and more.  We were there with roughly 35-40 {primarily} women using our creative gifts working on a vintage craft project, sipping champagne, eating cupcakes and getting to know Tereasa Surratt:  author, blogger, assumed owner of Camp Wandawega, creative director, mother and wife.  Tereasa recently published her second book, Found, Free & Flea and to honor that, Anthropologie hosted her and offered die-hard Anthro fans a fantastic Thursday night out curated with a book-signing, meet and greet.  It was fabulous!

Walking into any place with beautiful cupcakes, arts & crafts, wine and champagne is bound to be a good time!

Happy girls, Vaneesha and I!

The creative work-in-progress using old music sheets, greeting cards from the early 1900’s, baker’s twine, matchboxes and more!

  

 

The finished product!  I found the perfect spot in my entryway for it.
