June Jaunts

I thought I was going to be able to get back to blogging on a regular basis this month. Wrong! Life seems to be going at full tilt, and I have commitment after commitment to fulfill.....so let me offer my apologies. I will see what I can do between now and July 1st, when I should be past the crunch! The other night, after drinking far too much caffeine, I found myself wide awake and looking for a movie on Netflix. I found the most wonderful documentary on Halston...one of my favorite designers. His approach to the 1970's was definitely a "classic." Have you seen it? If not, you should!! Here's a preview....

 

Even if I can't blog in the next few days, I will be tweeting my adventures....going on a rather unusual road trip! See you soon.... Cheers, Liz

A Week Of Wonder

While I sort things out with my laptop and get a few other projects finished, I want to take this week to share with you some thoughts on design.  Whether clothing, jewelry, furniture, buildings...you name it....design is of paramount importance.  We'll be looking at designers and their designs all week.

To start....a video from Tiffany & Co. about the amazing Elsa Peretti.  Ms. Peretti was quite famous for her passionate approach to all she did during my time at Tiffany's.   One story even had it that she threw her fur coat into the fireplace after a particularly heated discussion with the TCO President!  From my simple sterling pen to my cobalt serving bowl to the silver necklaces I have given my daughters through the years....all the Peretti pieces we own are precious.
