Anna's shop
A sampling of her beautiful and colorful displays

Anna's blog

Special thanks again to Anna Spiro of the very popular blog Absolutely Beautiful Things for her mention and for featuring a photo from my house yesterday. She also featured a painting from Liza Hirst, an amazing artist and friend of mine living and working in Southern France. Anna's blog has grown to a huge worldwide readership in just a little over a year. She is a young designer based in Brisbane, Australia with a terrific eye and design sense. She runs her own shop and design firm and I hope to visit her one day and get to meet her in person. Thanks, Anna!! Here's a link to the post.

I hope we can all meet one day! I was thrilled when I saw your name mentioned and adore that sweet little bunny. Perhaps we can hop down to visit Anna one of these days!

I love Anna's store - thanks for sharing more photos - gotta Love that pink dresser! The portrait of your grandmother is really something and so special. She looked like such a classy lady. You're very lucky to have something like this to keep. I wish we still followed that tradition.

Yes, Karen, don't you love that inlaid mother-of-pearl dresser? It's amazing! Thanks for the comment on my grandmother, too. I feel grateful she is still living at almost 89!
