I found these beautiful coasters at my friend Emily Kroll's apartment, she was 
celebrating her birthday. I love wandering around my friend's places where in every

A coming soon side note ... Emily is working on a new venture and we will be 
collaborating on the first addition. Will keep you posted...

Commander in Chief, by Brian Tolle at the CRG Gallery

While I was Germany, Shirley made a summer vacation stop in Paris and went to the 
Musée Galliera, to see the Balenciaga exhibit at Les Docks. I love this necklace... it's
