Garnet Hill Wannabe

So, do any of you drool over the Garnet Hill catalogue? Good. I am not alone. I actually just got one yesterday. My first one ever. Holy Moly.
This picture inspired my outfit today. I have to tell you I have not worn tights in seven years! Unless Spanx count, but I doubt it.

Check out this Advent Calender! How cute is that? I decided this would be the year that I make one.
I never thought I would want a Flannel shirt/tunic type of a thing, but I do now.
The Boots? I can't even talk about them.
How about a Sweater Dress with leggings? Hello, how comfortable does that look?
All the Knits are delicious, and the jewelry? Well, just go take a look.
These shoes kept me up last night, and as soon as they are 90% off they will be mine. In a size 9. You know, just in case you were wondering.


On another note, here is the latest picture of the girls. Well, the girls and our Rooster, Herbert Burger. Can you see him over there in the corner? We are down to eight chickens. We went from twenty to eight. I am feeling so guilty. I really want to have free range chickens. We have a fox that we can not catch so I guess they will be free range some of the time. If you have any advice I would love to hear it!

I love Garnet Hill and one of these days I'm going to drive to their outlet. There are always beautiful quilts in their catalog.

If you're feeling shoppy, or just want to covet some more gorgeousness, check out sundancecatalog.com if you haven't already.

I have an unhealthy addiction to their clothes.

At this moment, I'm wearing two items (long swirly denim skirt and tall wedge suede boots) that I would pull from a burning fire.

LOVE THAT SHOP.

no catalog makes me more wanty than Garnet Hill. sigh. I really want some new boots now.

Renee said...

Wow, what a great catalogue, I've not seen Garnet Hill before.

Unfortunately, now that something is feasting on your chickens, it won't stop until you can eliminate it. Until then keeping your hens safely inside is about all that will keep them alive.

I have been out of the US for so long that this is the first that I am even hearing about this catalogue! You sure do look hip!

i just ordered their catalog. i love all the inspiration you just posted. :) i need to get some boots and tights and....

Ummmm LOVE Garnet Hill. They actually used to carry the COOLEST maternity clothes. Then they stopped about the time I got pregnant. The kids clothes are more affordable and good quality and you can usually find a $10/50 or $20/100 coupon code online.

All of their Hable Construction stuff is SO cute, but expensive.

I just ordered their catalog - yummy. Is that a new knit you are wearing? As for the chickens - get a live trap with some LARGE marshmallows - works like a charm for us every time on either foxes or coons. I'm not sure how Todd Disposes of what he catches - but whatever it is, kill it or take it far, far away. Good luck on that!

LOVE Garnett Hill. A little pricey but so much fun to look at.

AlewivesGirl said...

Ahhh yes, Garnet Hill.

Also know as "I will take two of everything."

marit said...

You look terific!

I'd make an outdoor fence for the chicken, where they would be out, but still "trapped", and of course inside the chickenhouse at night...but I would also talk to a hunter...traps of some sort often does the trick! We've had a problem with the fox taking newborn/young lambs...not fun at all...

i lost 6 14week chickens last month to a fox...i was furious as they nearly on the point of lay, and like you i felt decidedly guilty as it was me that locked them up late!! my old neighbour told me the boys in the house had to pee around the the chookyard fence, they dont like the scent....so pee they did and to my amazement it has worked...its worth atry and then you can tell me how successful you have been or has my mr fox just found better tasting chickens somewhere else...p.s. it didn't pollute the air!!

kim said...

Oh, this is how I feel when I shop at Anthropologie. I want all the handknitted goods. Actually, I want to know why I think of the designs myself. Your outfit is adorable. You look like you walked off the pages of GH yourself.

Becky said...

I have to say...I like your combination better than your inspiration pic's. And love that your pic is on that gorgeous porch!

Val in the Rose Garden said...

I have never seen Garnet Hill before. I think you have introduced me to another addiction. lol...

As far as your chickens: Free range does not have to mean unprotected. It will take a bit more work, but a moveable pen will keep them safe and keep the fox out.

Good luck! Loosing that many birds must be really hard. I hated loosing one of my girls.

I love Garnet Hill. I first heard of it when Leslie aka friend-to-knit-with posted about it on her blog.
The sweater dress looks like a good investment, but you're such at pro-knitter I'll bet you can knit it up in no time.
Good luck with your chickens. I wish I had some good advice for you.

Cyndi's Re-Creations said...

Love that catalog!! all their stuff is so pretty as for the chickens ... when we had chickens we were lucky in that we had two outside dogs that pretty much took care of anything that would want to eat them but I have herd of the movable pins that you put over them while their out during the day if that's when you are loosing them.
Good luck!

Simply Dandy said...

I am a tights and leggings wearing girl. I do not like hose and always wear tights instead but leggings with a long shirt....love it! Oh yes and a great pair of boots to finish it off!!

i love your outfit. and i never knew garnet hill carried all those brand names.

tiennie said...

Garnet Hill gives me a serious case of the wants! So does your cute outfit! :)

Hilary said...

Oh no...I had not looked through a Garnet Hill catalog before, but now I want everything you linked to! I LOVE that corduroy kilt, and I love your outfit, too! I hope it went well with the tights! :)

Missy knits said...

I love Garnet Hill too. First thing I do every morning when I get to work and turn on my computer is to check out their Sale of the Day. You can score some real deals, I tell you (especially during their bi-annual end of the season clearance sales). I am so addicted, I've got my boss checking every morning too!! But I agree with earlier posts, when it comes to sweaters, you can knit them even better.

Love. Garnet. Hill.

lucky knitter said...

Cute outfit! Garnet Hill is such a great catalogue.

I wish I had some tips to keep your "girls" safe. They are so sweet.

raining sheep said...

Wow, I have never heard of Garnet Hill and now I am Smitten! Love the 'girls'. I can't believe there is still green where you are - my backyard is covered in snow.

MichelleB said...

Seriously cute things! Have you seen Amy Butler's new tunic pattern? Looks just like their flannel tunics. I had talked myself out of getting it, but I think you reconvinced me to get it.

Journeying Five said...

your outfit looks hot! way to go! true confession...never even heard of garnet hill, but then, i am canadian and we might not have that store.

Jessica said...

Whenever Garnet Hill shows up in the mail box it is like I should just say "order one of everything" it is bliss in catalog form!

a friend to knit with said...

in a perfect world my entire closet would be garnet hill.

sigh. (again) :)

Steph said...

Those chicks have grown so quickly, and you are one fine looking chick, too!

UK lass in US said...

Hmm, I remember wearing flannel shirts and leggings the first time around...

Let me know if those shoes do ever go to 90 per cent off - don't worry, I'm not a size 9...

Barn House said...

The first time we lost several chickens all at once, it really devasted us. We have had problems with coyotes, then owls, and now hawks and an occassional eagle. A bit crazy to deal with (to say the least). If I had the real formula, we would be rich. But "Boy Pee" had been great help with coyotes (chicken eaters) and deer (garden/plant eaters). Keeping them fenced off for a while made the coyotes move on to easier prey. Keep us updated. We wish you the best.

The clothes are lovely but I can't bring myself to hand over $195 or more for anything in there. I end up finding look alikes at Ross, JC Penny's or just find a pattern and make a skirt or dress myself. It's great inspiration though!

I have just read your post on chickens. I love my chickens, too, and they were free range at one time. Along came a fox, wild dogs, and a hawk...they are not free range chickens anymore. I would never kill the fox, or the hawk...the wild dogs, yes! My chickens lay different shades of green eggs, too. Aren't they fun? The golden chicken is lovely.
