i have a dear friend who is very, very talented. her name is hayley sarno and she is a brilliant artist. besides being talented and artistic, she is a great beauty with the softest voice and has out of this world style (she is known to always have a wicker nantucket purse on her wrist). to sum it up she is a modern lady and i adore her!

what i find so wonderful is all of this comes out in her art work and water colors. they are whimsical and fun, but also very chic, very feminine, yet very cool- a lovely and kind east coast girl who lives uptown, shops downtown and loves paris resonates.

she does artwork and logos for special projects, designs wall papers, she does fabulous stationary (you might have already seen a very special holiday card she did for me this year- a treasure), she has a new series called “animals on vacation” that you can purchase here, and then there is her blog, lulu depew– lulu is a little french poodle having fun, being pretty and living chic in NYC.

this is the season for giving and receiving gifts. i can’t think of a better gift than Hayley Sarno. she’s a special gift to me and i gift i get to share with you.

happy weekend!
