I have a lot of "invisible" friends whom I've known for years through the wonder of the internet. I believe I've known Lori since about 2001, when I joined a decorating forum and she was a member. The forum used to have a chat feature, which was a great way to get to know forum members better, and Lori was always in there, chatting away, and we had some great conversations.
She lives in Altadena, CA, where she runs Webster's Fine Stationers with her husband Scott. Scott is a renovation superman, and has done SO much with their gorgeous house, inside and out. (I suppose Lori has helped too...lol) Maybe Lori will start her own blog (besides her store blog) where she can share pictures of her gorgeous kitchen and fabulous yard.
Anyway, Lori was kind enough to post some great pictures from her store on the forum about two weeks ago, and I jumped on some bee items from the Mary Carol Garrity collection she's carrying. I love bees, and have a small collection of them, and "Bee" is also a nickname of mine (long story) so when I saw this tray and the box, I had to have them. Lori was kind enough to pack them up and ship the across the country for me. Isn't she awesome? :)
I keep threatening that one day I'll make it to California, and she says I have an open invitation, so hey--you never know!! Thanks Lori!
