I'm not sure I ever posted about my booksigning experience with author/designer Alexandra Stoddard last month. I took Elise to the gallery with me (thank goodness she behaved!).
Two notes: Alexandra and her husband Peter Megargee Brown are truly as loving to one another as she has written. It was so clear to me while watching them while I waited. Not surprisingly, they spent a long time chatting with each guest--so long that it took almost 45 minutes for our 5 person line! I asked her to dedicate my copy to Elise.
I was Googling for a complete list of her books when I found this lovely blog with never-before-seen photos of the Stoddard cottage in Stonington, Connecticut.
