Why I heart Jane…


Above is reason 1,001 why I adore my friend Jane Lilly Warren.  It’s a collage of her “future summer cottage.”  I mean really, could she possibly be any cuter/more talented/fabulous?  In case you’re new, Jane is a graphic designer in Manhattan and we went to school together in Switzerland.  She was also my former-Yugoslavia travel companion and we drank a lot of mai tais together at the hotel bar in Dubrovnik and shopped for carpets in Sarajevo, and wound up with a grand piano in our suite in Belgrade.  Anyway, if you don’t already read her blog, Lox Papers, you really must.  I heart you Miss Warren.

P.S. Fun fact: In the Wes Anderson film, The Darjeeling Limited, the suitcases have her initials!  I’m so jealous.

    Eek! I comment too much but I couldn’t help but admire this one. I love everything! Makes me wish I knew her. She sounds fabulous. Hopping over to her blog right now!

    This collage is completely lush! I’ve already printed it and pinned it up on my mini office bulletin board (I suppose it’s the non-blogger’s way to re-post… I hope both you and Jane approve!). Lots of future summer cottage day dreams today! XO

    As a croatian girl who adores dubrovnik…i am jealous! If you didn’t already, the next time you go back, you must go to Split. And any one of the amazing islands! Jane seems adorable! Will absolutely check out her blog :)

    Marija — We spent a night in Split as well! How I love Croatia. The Dalmatian coast is some of the most beautiful coastline in all the world! XX

    I’m not a stalker, but when I’m bopping around the city I sometimes wonder if i’ll bump into her on the street.

    Jane, if you read this, that would be AWESOME!
