I love meeting friends through friends.  especially when the original friend is a beloved contributer on Bliss and her friend is a talented designer that has renovated historical, yet forgotten cottages locally.

About a year ago Jennifer introduced me to her friend Sarah Phipps.  We were at an outdoor concert, I had had a couple glasses of wine (shhhh…) andSarah was beyond modest about what she was in the process of completing.  Our paths have crossed briefly throughout the year, and Jennifer always was more than willing to share what her friend Sarah was up to and the progress she had been making.  Then this past weekend Sarah and I bumped into one another at a local bend favorite.  I had asked her to send me some pics and links pertaining to her cottage business and design work for a piece I am working on for a blog that I am over the moon excited about.  That evening the email came and I have been in shock and my mouth has been agape ever since.
