Just wanted to express my appreciation for one of my favorite people in the design blogosphere, Anna Spiro, of Absolutely Beautiful Things. Anna has recently started a series that runs Thursdays on her blog. It's called "Absolutely Favorite Things". I was honored to be featured today with a snapshot of my favorite things (excuse my horrible photography - I give a whole new meaning to the term" washed-out"!). Australian Anna has achieved cult status in the blogging world with her great taste, inimitable style and eye for beauty. She is also a real sweetheart! Don't know about you, but I love Australians - I have met so many exceptionally nice and talented people from down under and am dying to go there and visit. Thank you, Anna!!
