Q: What is your favorite....
Color: At 5L2F we do not favor any color, they are like children we love them all!
Animal: We love all animals especially left in their own environment to enjoy life.
Season: At 5L2F we love celebrating all the moments in life the different seasons bring. The holidays are full of magic, memories and play. Halloween, Christmas, Valentines, Easter, birthdays... we are inspired by the lasting impressions these moments leave with us.
Movie: 5L2F loves the world of Disney. The classics from Snow White to new releases like Coco.
Book: Historical Fiction is a  guilty pleasure here at 5L2F. Stories from the past of real queens, kings and princesses always catch our attention.
Vacation Spot: We love to travel, we take small trips and take in our own home state of California. We go to the south and enjoy pralines, sweet tea and hospitality. We go to the northeast for tradition and to know our roots as Americans. We go out into the world from central, South America to Europe to Asia... if it is on Earth we want to go! We take one international trip at least a year to broaden our world view.
Food:Treats!!! Treats! Treats we love sweets, if you come to our design house you will find treats abound! We love beautiful cupcakes, meringue cookies, macaroons. We are inspired by the colors of confections and love to find beautiful treat shops.
