Back in October I went to Colorado to visit a friend from high school and to help celebrate the birthday of another dear friend (Suzanne Gerber). Suzanne's birthday party was held at her friend Robyn's home in Boulder. What a home! I was immediately smitten by the real, authentic, lived in, creative vibe the place exuded. This was no cold, heartless show house but a home. A place that had me immediately at ease. Robyn is the former editor of Natural Home and Garden
magazine and as such we had exchanged emails from time to time but we had never met in person. She is a gem!!!
As we were saying goodbye Robyn mentioned a book she had written entitled "Simply Imperfect"
and she gave me a copy. (Of course I made her sign it.) I read the entire book cover to cover on the way home on the plane. This is a design book that espouses reusing, repurposing and things that are worn with stories and life! Not only does Robyn write of such things she lives it.
Imagine my surprise when I got to the back of the book, to the resources section, and found on page 162 in the Textiles and Upholstery section: Harmony Art! I just about fainted. I am sure the person seated next to me on the plane was wondering what I was giggling about. How totally amazing.
Robyn is the newly appointed editor of Organic Spa magazine
. With Robyn at the helm, I am sure it will be wonderful, thoughtful and inspiring.
Oh, and Suzanne is up to some really exciting things in 2012 too.... so stay tuned to hear about more women of strength and purpose.
