My book in good company at Summerhill Market ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒธ@summerhillmkt

Thrilled that @johnderiancompany will be carrying my book. Here my illustration of his sweet new West Village store for the Wall Street Journal. Particularly fascinated by the intentionally bleached & faded cabbage rose wallpaper in that back room! #travelsthroughthefrenchriviera #johnderian #wisteria #westvillage

Bastille Day at Wychwood Barns! Hot hot hot!

I'll be signing books & selling wares at the Bastille Day festival this weekend at Wychwood Barns! Welcome any French lovers! 2:30pm-11pm enjoy a market, food, music, dance and more brought to you courtesy of the French Consulate @fedetricoloreto @wychwoodbarnsto www.federationtricolore.ca

So thrilled @sportinglifecan is going to carry my book at their Yonge Street store even though they don't usually carry books! This was my first serious retail job as an 18 year old and where I learned the proper way to hang pants. The best training I ever received at any job. #travelsthroughthefrenchriviera #sportinglife

Had so much fun today going to French Consulate to let them know about my book. Perfect for Bastille Day! Illustration of the Nice flower market ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒบ #niceflowermarket @francetoronto @consulfrancenyc @franceinla #travelsthroughthefrenchriviera

Thank you @houseandhomemag @kkb416 for mention in your July issue!

Discovered @idlewildnyc books recently and fell in love. Not only every guidebook you can imagine but tables and tables of memoir, fiction, poetry, social commentary where travel plays a starring role. I have seen this movie dozens of times but the book is even more beautiful. Also learned yesterday they will carry my book! #idlewildnyc #roomwithaview #wanderlust

Me in the garden modelling our new yellow tunics in cap ferrat print :-) I wear this shirt - either this yellow or blue hibiscus - every day @stephaniepesakoff shirt & climbing hydrangeas

Going back through my boxes of illustrations and found this portrait, don't remember what it was for. #katespade

Kate and Andy gave me my first big break when they asked me to illustrate their book trilogy in 2002, and then carried my tunics in their shops. A very sad day. #katespade
