At A Restoration Hardware near you...see my drawings in the Mercer Frame Collection!

We interrupt this Italy recap to bring you this special announcement...Restoration Hardware has a new line of frames, called the Mercer Collection, and they have used three of my figure drawings for the face papers in the frames! David and i ventured out to the Perimetter mall this morning to check them out. I was very excited...the display of frames on top was the first thing you saw as you entered the store. And as we explored the beautiful store there were several other areas where the frames were on display!

These are the drawings that were used (they are cropped in the frames)



So to mark the occasion, David and I bought the 5" x 7" frame, and we got in the car...he said "do you want to open it and make sure it's the right one?" So I checked the box, and it's all wrapped in Styrofoam and taped pretty well and I thought "Nah, I'm sure it's fine". OK - for those of you who know me, you can probably guess what happened next...that's right! I opened the box finally AFTER we left the parking lot and were driving on the 285 and instead of my drawing being in the frame in the box there was...nothing. I got a blank frame. Chalk this up to another experience where I should always listen to my husband. (Just don't ever tell him I said that!)
Anyway...if you are ever in a Restoration Hardware - check out the Mercer Frames! Those are my drawings!

That's so wonderful -- so much better to see real art than the cheesy family photos they usually put in as face paper!
