I have something really great to share with you today.  This is the most inspiring home of Leona Leppers.  We found each other through facebook, magnetically drawn through digital space by our love of colourful things.  I am completely blown away by her sense of style, colour and craftiness.  I wish I could be her friend in the real world of my everyday life.

Let me take you on a little tour of her world of playfulness and joy.

We both have a love for little altar spaces with statuettes and charms and feathers and sparkles.

How can you not love the fuzzy rainbow lamp.  It is such amazing contemporary design!  I sigh with happiness and twinkling eyes.  It makes my eyes happy to look at her work.

Ahhhh, the Guadalupe lamp!  What greatness!  I will never tire of Guadalupe and all objects that relate to her.  I once made a Madonna skirt that was sold at the store on Saint Laurent Blvd a couple years back.

This is a detail of one of Leona’s hats.

This little number is a fabulous take on textile jewelry.  I have been making my fleurette pins for so long, I forgot I could make anything other than flowers.

And here is the great lady herself!  She sits blissfully surrounded by her bags, belts and accessories.

Thank you Leona for being your wonderful self.  You bring joy to the lives of many people and I am inspired by your colourful ways.  Maybe one day we will meet and spend a day crafting together.

She is my far away kindrid spirit.  Frida would be our friend too.  In my imaginary world we could all share a studio and stay late into the evenings designing, painting and sewing to the tunes of Mexican mariachi music.  Oh what a life that would be!
