My Favorite Things - Anna Spiro




When I started All the Best it was purely for my personal enjoyment and a way to archive my growing collection of magazine articles and favorite travel destinations. I had no idea that anyone would come to visit my site or that I would find so many fantastic blogs.

One of the very first I stumbled across was Absolutely Beautiful Things. The name alone was enough to hook me and then I fell for the talented Anna Spiro. Not only is Anna a design genius and the owner of Black & Spiro in Brisbane, Australia, she is also one of my favorite bloggers! I never tire of her creative tablescapes and inventive use of color.

Merry Christmas Anna.

Favorite city:
Venice. It's just so romantic and whimsical and different from any other place in the world.

Favorite movie
:
There are so many movies I love! It’s hard to narrow it down to just one. I love all 'girly' movies and ones that make me cry. I know that may seem strange but sometimes it's just great to watch a movie that makes you cry and cry and cry. I feel so much better afterwards!!

Favorite season:
Definitely Christmas time and as Christmas falls in summer here in Australia, I have to say the Christmas summer holidays at the beach. It’s my absolute favourite time of year.

Favorite book
:
My French Life by Vicki Archer

Favorite food:
Jelly Babies

Favorite colors
:
Pink, blue, yellow, orange, aqua, green, white, black…I love them all!!

Favorite flower
:
Pink Peonies

Favorite memory
:
Christmas holidays as a child at my family's beach house at Stradbroke Island.

She has a great eye. I ordered My French Life as a little gift for myself and it's wonderful.

Great interview. Jelly Babies are always one of the first things I purchase when in the UK (well, maybe the second, after salt and vinegar rice cakes. Why don't they make those in the states?).
