Lanne 3I am so excited to announce that Simply Saratoga magazine has asked me to adapt my blog for a new series of articles for the magazine! For my first article, one our favorite Silverwood artists, Jennifer Lanne, so graciously let me invade her AMAZING studio space and home and answers the questions I’ve been dying to ask since I met her. Jennifer’s amazing flare for staging and eye for antiques is so unique and cool- I can’t wait for you to see the full article, where we talk renovations and I pick her brain on her favorite local antique and design resources!

We had professional photographer, Tom Stock, shoot the real pics for the article, but in the meantime, here’s a few teasers from my inferior iPhone…

A close-up of a classic "Lanne vignette". She finds the most amazing little treasures! (Right, Sarah Thompson?!)

Jennifer just can't leave anything untouched! Even the most banal things, like a hay bale, get a little "jazz".

This is an outhouse on the farm... see what I mean?! Even THIS is cute!

I mention this sign in the article... read it. It's so odd!

And finally, just because they're so stinkin' cute, Jennifer's pet piggies! (They each way about 700 pounds!)
