The Pottery Barn Decor That Will Make You More Intriguing


Dear Readers!  The new Pottery Barn Catalog just arrived and not a moment too soon!  For you see, in this issue of The Catalog, Pottery Barn finally provides solutions to how we, as boring, ordinary citizens, can become more intriguing!

“Your Home Tells the Intriguing Story of who you are, where you’ve been and what inspires you most.” — Pottery Barn Catalog August 2012

What Pottery Barn means by this is that your home WILL tell an intriguing story of how intriguing you are IF you purchase fake-intriguing-story-about-you decor from Pottery Barn.

Frankly, PB suspects you’re not all that intriguing which is why Pottery Barn has taken the liberty of punching up your life through the use of decor that implies you are all that and a bag of potato chips. Let’s look as some examples, shall we?

What fake, intriguing story do the decorative elements in this Pottery Barn room say about you?

The intriguing story this Pottery Barn wall decor says about you is:

  You don’t quite understand about the alphabet. 

Oh sure we all learned our ABC’s . . . except for you.  Why?  Because you were too busy helping Grams hunt for truffles at Martha’s Vineyard and, therefore, never attended school with all the other “saps” which means you can’t read or write. So now you obsessively nail gigantic wooden letters to your walls.  So what? That’s not weird, it’s intriguing!

The intriguing story this Pottery Barn vignette says about you is:

You’re favorite snack is honey and shredded Parmesan cheese.

Ah! Nothing quenches the thirst and eases the hunger pangs quite like a refreshing jar of honey and a big ol’ heaping bowl of shredded Parmesan cheese after a long day of helping Grams frantically dig for truffles at Martha’s Vineyard in the backyard estates of the rich and famous before they come home.

You and Grams prefer a snack that sticks to your ribs, your fingers as well as your Pottery Barn Vintage Printer’s Customizable Cabinet!  Oh sure, let people roll their eyes at how messy you are!  That’s the difference between them and you.  They’re stupid, and YOU’RE INTRIGUING!

The  intriguing story this Pottery Barn Blackboard says about you is:

Your grandmother is a drug dealer.

If you look closely at this blackboard, you will see that somebody has written “EMPTY Da Da Da Da.”  and  “Do EMPTY 4″ 

And you know you didn’t write it because you are too intriguing to know how to read and write.  Could it have been Grams?

Wait a minute why are the police leading Grams out to that police car?

What? All those truffles Grams was digging up (and sampling) turned out to be hallucinogenic mushrooms which she apparently was selling to earn money to purchase intriguing-story-about-you decor from Pottery Barn?

Ha ha!  That Grams!  While most grandmothers are sitting at home in their rocker knitting sweaters, reading  Reader’s Digest and clipping coupons, YOUR Grams is trading cigarettes, working out and filing appeals!

And if that doesn’t make YOU intriguing, Pottery Barn doesn’t know what does!

Until next time . . . I love you

  1. I can’t stop laughing at this Pottery Barn post! Thank GOD I can purchase an intriguing and trendy chalkboad and set it stylishly next to a big vat of honey and shredded cheese. Now I too have personality!

    • Darn! That’s what I should have gotten you for your birthday. Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to put up with your un-pottery barnized personality for another year! LOL! :D

  2. hahah! I knew there was a perfectly good reason for nailing big wooden letters in random patterns on the wall! And now I know, it means that you’re intriguing!!!! LOL!! What would we do without the helpful instructions and hints from the good people at Pottery Barn? They really seem to have our best interests in mind, especially suggesting we buy that intriguing blackboard. hahaha!

    • Isn’t that the truth, Lisa! I think PB deserves some kind of an humanitarian award. Or maybe the Nobel Peace Prize, but then they are in a lot of competition with Al Gore whose not only intriguing as the world’s only robot man, but also has the best interests of the world at heart! LOL! :D

  3. I’m intrigued as to how PB thought i’d have the time or ability to read this catalog. After all, now that grams is gone, them”mushrooms” ain’t gonna dig out themselves.
    P.S. This comment was written by my lawyer.
    At least, he says he wrote what I said.
    I can’t tell…

    • Actually if you eat enough of them they do start to “dig out themselves”

      Uh . . . don’t look now but isn’t that your lawyer over there by the side of the freeway eating . . . I can’t tell what it is . . .

  4. Arrgghh! I had a chance to be intriguing, and I blew it– I nailed the shredded cheese to the wall and ate the hallucinogenic wooden letters!!

    But now I’m A-OK.

    And B-OK.

    And C-OK…

    One of your funniest, Chief! Now I’ll never be able to look at truffles again, without thinking of dear old Grams in the state pen… : )
