The one world religion is kindness.

What three words would best describe your style?

Artsy, comfy and unconventional.

My idea of a perfect day is. . .

Hiking to and swimming in a lake and coming home to a glass of good wine

and Fettuccine Alfredo.

What one fashion rule do you always abide by?

Always wear lipstick.

The biggest fashion faux pas (mistake) I ever made was. . .

Trying to be trendy. I can’t carry it off.

What article of clothing is at the top of your shopping list?

Comfy, yet attractive shoes.

Describe what’s in your travel beauty bag.

Lipstick, moisturizer, mascara, eyebrow pencil and mineral powder.

The best beauty advice I ever received was. . . .

Get enough sleep, hydrate, smile but most of all be kind.

Name your favorite perfume or signature scent.

Ginger, sandalwood and lavender.

How do you unwind?

Working in my studio creating glass beads, jewelry or sewing something….Oh yes, playing with my dog or hiking with my Sole Sisters Hiking and Blisters Society. Sitting in my garden. Running my two shops on Etsy.

Where is your favorite place to travel?

For cities: London has it hands down. For wilderness solitude: Washington, Alaska, California, Oregon and Montana. For beaches: Costa Rica, St. Croix, Thailand, Maui and the Puget Sound five minutes from my house. For R&R: my own backyard.

Do you have a passion project or favorite hobby?

I love making art. My favorite media is glass and beads. I love fabric and to make animals and dolls. I collect beautiful found objects like beach rocks. I have a lovely garden with a fountain.

Describe the most memorable gift you’ve ever received.

A gardenia corsage in Greece from my mother on my 16th Birthday.

How has your style evolved over the years?

I am slowly learning what items look good on me that are also comfortable. I do not believe in suffering for beauty but I also eschew frumpiness.

One item I never leave the house without is. . . . .

A killer handbag.

Quote to live by?

    In this day and age of Free Shipping and returns on almost all sites, at least for loyal customers, I HATE HATE HATE the fact that every time I order from you I pay about $20 shipping and handling!! And then if I need or want to return something, woe is me.

    I honestly would order more often if I knew knew that it could go back if I did not like how it looked on me!

    Thank you,

    I buy your clothes all the time… love the colors. I would love to buy some of your bed coverings but: (1) they are quilts not comforter covers, and (2) you do not tend to have many colors. People who love their down comforters (like me(, just want a cover to put them in! And people who love wear colors, don’t want bland colors on the bed. For example, I’d LOVE a comforter cover that looks like the Ingrid Smocked Quilt!! But make it in light periwinkle!! Or light teal PRETTY PLEASE!! I will be the first to buy it!!
    Thank you for listening!!
