Last year, Jane Ip, creator of Jeanne Lottie, started a painting class with her talented friend Alexandra Zeremski. Their first water and acrylic painting together was Basket of Joy.
The subject of this still-life is a purse from the Jeanne Lottie spring/summer 2010 collection whose natural hand-woven straw tote with fuchsia silk flowers is lined with a checkered pattern. ($50; also available in matching flowers.)
How wonderful would it be to go on a picnic with a bottle of wine, some delicious cheese and crackers, and to spend a day out somewhere where the sun is shinning, flowers are blooming, and birds are singing? Perhaps it’s still cold out there and it’s only end of January, but it doesn’t stop you from using your imagination. May this straw bag will bring you warm breezes, and a basket of joy to fill with beautiful moments that will happen this summer!
True Happiness is…to be able to imagine
