Welcome home, Olivia

At last, Olivia is home.

I saw her last spring at the DC Design House and wrote about her at the beginning of September. Here is the original Olivia that I saw at the DC Design House, in a room designed by Marjory Segal:

Photo lifted from the Washington Space blog

I wrote about her again when I went to artist John Matthew Moore's gallery to inquire about having a print made. Then came the trip to A & D Custom Framing in McLean to pick out a frame and fabric to go behind her.

A close up of the frame and fabric. The print is mounted so it floats.

All that's left to do is move (and upgrade) my thermostat so Olivia can own the wall.

I was going to wait until she was hanging to share pictures, but I couldn't help myself. I am so, so excited to finally have Olivia in my home!

I thought I'd share a funny sight from my trip up to Northern Virginia. Central Virginia has a good number of alpaca farms, but I had never seen an alpaca transport and couldn't help but pull out the camera while I was at a traffic light behind one. Rest assured, I was stopped. The light had just turned green as I snapped the photo.


  1. Olivia is beautiful! Looking forward to seeing her in her new spot.

  2. Great framing job - I adore Olivia. Thanks for the restaurant info - we had a great time at Himalayan Fusion - way too much time at the buffet. As a result, no time for shopping. That's okay - I'll come back another time sans husband!!!

  3. Hello Olivia! Welcome home!

  4. oh! I love fun ART! looks great!

  5. That fabric mat and frame look just amazing. Great piece, I can't wait to see it up!!

  6. Congratulations!!! Nice framing job.

  7. Olivia is so wonderful! Hmm, yet another thing I "must" have!
