i’m jealous of lisa golightly

Oh, so pretty! Little bits and pieces of sunny childhood memories brought lovingly to you by American painter Lisa Golightly. Now, some of  you might know her as Kiki & Polly, as both her portfolio site, and Etsy shop, go by that name. Why? Here is Lisa’s very sweet explanation: “The name, in fact, is inspired by my daughter’s love of a bird she named Kiki, and for her imaginary friend Polly. Polly no longer visits our house as she once did, but I try to keep the spirit of childhood, wonder and imagination with me in my Portland, Oregon studio.” That makes me want to cry! Am I alone here? Anyone?

{…want two more reasons to be jealous of Lisa? One of her pieces was featured in Martha Stewart’s Holiday Issue (p.54), AND she was also selected to have a table at the Martha Stewart Holiday Craft Sale coming up on December 4th in New York! Congratulations Lisa, and good luck xo}
