Lookbook Series 7: Lenny The Lizard

This lookbook is about a lizard named Lenny. He has been waiting patiently for his portrait to be brought to life. Lenny is a colorful character and doesn't like to blend in, but rather prefers to stand out. He's not perfect and he is ok with that... reminding us that by focusing on our strengths we can accomplish great things. Lenny enjoys exploring the garden and hanging out in the sun, bringing his own pallet of design and color into the world for inspiration. ~Enjoy
