there’s a new diva on the block.

while we were in palm springs last week we had the extreme pleasure of dropping by to visit the very fabulously talented sharon montrose for a photo shoot, for ahem, little miss lucy. y’all should have heard me squeal with excitement when sharon asked if she might photograph lucy. as you might expect my answer was something like, “ummm, hell yes!”

i was so honored, and couldn’t help but feel like one of those obnoxiously proud stage mommas. except maybe when sharon’s very patient and kind husband chased lucy around the pool trying to wrangler her for the shots. the little diva was playing coy! but, here she is, made to look quite lovely by sharon’s magic camera. if you like these, you’ll love the menagerie of other animals in sharon’s print shop. check ’em out. and thanks again sharon for such a special memento of miss lucy. i’ll treasure these.

    if you get really sick of her diva attitude, you can pack her off to me! we’re used to divas around here, and we could use a white long haired one to round out the collection!
