Jeanne-Aelia Desparmet-Hart of Through the French Eye of Design surprised me with this wonderful award this week! JAD has a wonderful blog concerning all things European and decorative. She was born in Tunisa, lived in Paris... Africa and now resides in New York. Her blog reflects her unique background and covers a variety of style and design issues.
Upon receiving this prestigious award, I have now been decreed to share ten things about me......
1.I have met Dale Chihuly and am greatly influenced by his work in glass.
2. I wear Hermes parfum every day....even when on scaffolding covered in sheetrock dust, painting away!
3.I drive a Jeep
4.Paris owns my heart....Italy owns my soul.....
5.I will give up a meal to buy a book.
6.I have a BFA in Art History
7.I have a *thing* for Prada.....!
8.I live in flip-flops
9.I paint to Puccini....
10.I watched in awe as a man walked on the moon and mourned when President Kennedy was shot.
Blogging has widened my knowledge and feeds my brain daily with visuals and printed word. I would like to share 15 blogs I visit each day that feed my soul, jumpstart my brain and make me smile! To be fair, I put all twenty names(yes, the list grew!) together and randomly drew them out to list below....
Design Inspiration. Planet Stencil Library
My Castle In Spain
A Thousand Clapping Hands
Cote De Texas
The Style Saloniste
New York Social Diary
Ok....just five more, there are too many good ones!
A Gift Wrapped Life
The Ribboned Crown
I actually visit more than these twenty daily, but felt I would overwhelm if I let the list get longer!
I have made good friendships through many authors of these wonderful blogs. Each blogger represents a specific area from this planet-New York, Philadelphia, Texas, Kansas, Louisiana,.Virginia, Florida, California, Granada, England, Amsterdam and Canada. I hope you click on these links and find some new friends!
