Saturday celebration of absolutely beautiful things

Posted on Sat, 28 Feb 2009 by midcenturyjo

I’ve been sitting in front of this computer now for over an hour. Although I’m supposed to be writing WINKS I find myself clicking through the pages of Absolutely Beautiful Things, my mind wondering from one pretty picture to the next. Most of you will know that Anna Spiro has decided to step away from her blog for awhile. Family, her successful decorating business and the whole big interesting world out there are consuming her time as they should. I’ll miss Anna’s daily posts of all things lovely. Hers was the first blog I turned to everyday. Truth be told I still do just in case she’s come back. I’ll miss Anna’s blog but at least I’ll have the joy of driving past Anna’s Black & Spiro shop windows and marvelling at the stylish riot of colour and pattern. So this Saturday is not about loss it’s about celebrating a stylish women and her absolutely beautiful body of work.

Thank you for celebrating a woman of style, generosity and an amazing ability to mix colour and pattern. I loved every single image in this post. I will miss her posts, although Anna did leave a comment over at French Essence indicating that she might be back sooner than we think – hooray!!! I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

I love colours, I love mix

beautiful post!

Lucky you, that you still get to see her work in person. I discovered her blog just recently and found it so amazing.

Dear Jo,

Thank you so much for this heartfelt post. You almost had me in tears!

I have decided to return to the blog as I realise I cannot stand to live without it.

I hope you are well.


Oh, and I forgot to say…next time you are driving past Black & Spiro, make sure you pop in. I would love to see your happy face again!

I LOVE Anna’s blog! One of my most favorites! She’s got such a great eye, and mixes patterns, color and texture with perfection!

I love the first chair in the David Hicks fabric – I love the colours presented in this entry.
