Pia! Pia! Pia!
I just received my pre-ordered copy of Amsterdam: Made by Hand, the latest book by stylist, photographer, and blogger Pia Jane Bijkerk, and I must admit I did a little hop of joy when I pulled it out of the mailbox. And then I proceeded to do some mental joy hops as I flipped through its pages. I have no immediate plans to visit Amsterdam, but I can already tell I will be turning to this lovely little book often for jolts of visual inspiration. There's just no one like Pia, and if you've been reading my blog for a while, or have just spent some time browsing though the links and such that I've featured to the right, you might know that I am a HUGE fan of hers (previous Pia-centric posts here and here). I just can't even begin to tell you how much wonder and delight her work brings into my life. And she just has the most charming spirit and personality that comes through in everything she does. If you're not familiar with her yet, please, do yourself a favor and go visit her blog.
