I am pleased as punch to share the news that I am a new "tastemaker" at the lovely online destination, Lila Mae. A few new Finder Not Keeper collections are exclusive to Lila Mae, including the Serengeti Vignette, pictured above.
Lila Mae is an eco-friendly destination for high quality products that are sustainably made to minimize the environmental impact. Most of you have figured out that everything I sell is used, antique, and vintage, which means my collections are almost as green as the moss growing on my copy of Aldo Lepold's A Sand County Almanac. So Lila Mae and Finder Not Keeper are a good match.
We are a good match for another reason. I am in love with the real life Lila Mae who was the grandmother of founder Heather French, and the inspiration for the business. You can read about her here. Lila Mae was a child of the Depression but that didn't stop her from living a life in full. Apparently she wore leopard print pjs, drank scotch and water, and cheered for the Cubbies. I wonder what she would say about her granddaughter's entrepreneurial spirit. I can only imagine her delight.
Lila Mae's great-granddaughter, Olivia French, contributes her talents to the enterprise as well. She wrote a wonderful blog post about me. I sound pretty opinionated in it. Isn't that strange?!
Here are more pics of some of the Lila Mae offerings. Go visit! Mind you, I'm not the only belle of the ball. Tell me what else you find. Happy Weekend!
Thank you for stopping by and getting all the way down here to the bottom. Now that you made it this far, would you do me the great honor of pinning your favorite image onto Pinterest? Much obliged! Hope to see you next Friday, same time, same place.
