perky boobies

perky boobies

One of my daily indulgences is stopping by my favorite blogs while the morning is still in its infancy and my little angels sound asleep.  I have all my favorite sites bookmarked, and am so thrilled when I notice that there is a new posting.  After our conversations I leave feeling amazed, happy, a bit more cultured, and a better woman.  Or more correctly, a woman better equipped to take care of her house, her kids, her hubby, herself, and her job.

I first came across Lisa Borgnes Giramonti’s blog in the spring of this year, and immediately felt a connection. It could be perhaps that we both share some of that European sentimentality and affinity to tradition, or perhaps because she is so naturally chic and stylish and my little self wants to be just like her.  Whichever it is, I am glad and will not question it. After all, I benefit from her natural graciousness and elegance on a daily basis, and often find myself wondering just how she would approach a certain design dilemma or dinner seating issue.

She is the ultimate designer, hostess, writer, and artist. I mean really, how many of you like to spend your time embroidering? I certainly didn’t until I saw Lisa’s work, and fell under the spell of this form of documenting the passage of time. She made this long-lost art, chic again. Check these three posts out: this: and this: I absolutely adore them, and her, and I don’t know how she manages to make something so time consuming seem so pleasant.

And… Lisa has given me permission to say that something MAJOR is in the works with her embroidery, which thrills me because I can boast that I knew her way before she was a world famous billionaire artist.  So leave me a comment and then head on over and check out her site.  You’ll love it!

    Isn’t Lisa’s site amazing. I first found her because one of my favourite bloggers A Social Dilettante told me about her - he is worth checking out as well incidentally.

    As for this embroidered sampler, Angie - didn’t she do an amazing job? Not only the craftsmanship (craftwomanship) but the message.


  2. Ava Says:

    Thanks for sharing Angie. I will go and check out her site. I am a knitter. I find it so relaxing.

  3. Laura [What I Like] Says:

    Angie I couldn’t agree more…in fact, I think I may have found your blog through hers! Lisa does bring a bit of glamor to the everyday, doesn’t she? And I agree, I had never considered embroidery before but now am a tad intrigued by the idea…

  4. Deb Says:

    Love the embroidery piece. Nice to see that it is still a practiced art!

    i know very little about embroidery, but when i see it, the detail, the beauty, the sentiment stops me in my tracks… it’s so pretty.

    Perky boobies?
    Not after nursing three babies!
    Thanks for the laugh. *grin*
    I’m going to say Hello to Lisa now!

  9. Sandra Says:

    Oh well. There is something else I will have to lay down. Will never have those … not after having fed ten kids over twenty years!!!

    Just have to have something else going for me.

  10. Jena Says:

    LOL Angie!!! That’s an awesome embroidery piece. I’ll go check Lisa out!

  11. Ruth Says:

    That is one witty piece. I found her blog from your site, and enjoy reading it, too. (I haven’t been able to keep mine up…too many distractions and long work hours just drain my ability to come up with something worth posting, but I will work on it….New Year Resolution!)

    I discovered her when she was on a trip to London. I was entranced and she is now one of my favourite stops as well!

    Thank you Julie. I will go and check his site out. I LOVE the message. There’s so much more to womanhood than the shape of our breasts!

    Ava, I am horrible at most home arts, but tremendously admire them all.

    Laura, that is so true! That is how you found me. You however, are as glamorous, but just don’t know it.

    Isn’t it just, Deb? I so want to be good at either knitting or embroidery.

    You’ll love her site, Susan.

  16. angiem Says:

    Oh Renee… I know. And I’m so sorry…

    I agree Audrey. It’s so delicate and detailed. We should learn it together, you and I.

    Karen, anytime!

    Sandra, thanks for visiting. Wow! Did you say ten? God bless you and your sweet children abundantly!

  17. angiem Says:

    Jena, yes the phrase brings out the giggles. I love it though! Go check her out. I know you and I know you’ll love her site.

    Ruth, after the holidays life will slow down and you’ll get back to it. I know you will.

    Pamela, I’ve so enjoyed your last post. Your home is magical!!!

    Bridgette, yes it sure is both funny and amazing. Love your days of Christmas series.

    Deb @Talk at the Table, I saw that! I’m so glad you had a beautiful time there. I look forward to your Advent series, Deb. They bring me closer to heaven.

    Merry, merry!

    Wow - she does amazing work. I am not surprised that something big is coming up for her: she’s talented. (And that was a very attention-getting post heading, too! ;) )
