bird in the hand


so as i mentioned in my last post, i met lisa of bird in the hand yesterday. it's funny to me how much and how little comes across about a person in their blog. lisa's blog is certainly colorful, but she, her art and her house were even more colorful in person, if you can imagine that!

lisa and i toured each others' houses since we live close by and both like to see others' homes (as i bet a lot of us blog surfers do since we get glimpses of homes in blogs). i had been inside for a few days on account of my cold, so everything was a bit overwhelming when i arrived at lisa's. being outside in the sun, meeting a new person whose art i admire (always daunting for shy, easily dumbstruck people like me!), and seeing all that great art and color in lisa's house! wow. i couldn't take it all in, there were so many lovely photographs, artwork, colors, fabric, etc.

above are just a few (my favorites) of the stack of great fabric pieces lisa gave me, along with a dwell mag, and plush you broschure. what a generous gal! i think some of my new bears will be sporting some colorful new coats soon! thank you lisa!
