Meeting Jonathan Adler

Have I ever mentioned that whenever I am in a grumpy mood, I read the Jonathan Adler "My Prescription for Anti-Depressive Living" and immediately I feel great again? (and then notice myself re-arranging my home...) but that's besides the point!

Last night was pretty unreal.
I got to meet one of my absolute favorite designers. Ever.
Jonathan Adler!!
There was a book signing/Q&A at the Barnes and Nobles in Santa Monica and of course, I was front in center with best friend, Christine in tow. We had an absolute ball. It exceeded my expectations and it is something I will never forget.

It's people like Jonathan Adler who have so much grace, poise, interest, and care that make the design world amazing. He is creative, has such a keen eye, and really is appreciate of where his career has taken him. Not only that though - he wanted to give out his secrets: how to do this... and how to do that... He genuinely is on a mission to make everything esthetically "happy chic!"and he will help all of us get there!!

OH - and when I introduced myself - he mentioned he totally reads The Glam Lamb "Oh! I know you!" Yes. Thats what he said, my heart started racing, and it made my night!!

I also have added some new lingo to my vocab... "Obs" (obviously) "Tots" (totally) and when in doubt -- refer to everything as "Bananas!"




Yes - I had him sign it all. My best friend has his large boob vase... I wish I grabbed it from her to have him sign it!!
