  1. "Schiap" found beauty all around her! I adore those buttons! YOWZERS! What a gifted, amazing talent!

    I have to tell you, I had a "show" for my friend Rebecca Collins at my house in Pasadena California; a jewelry designer (and a fabulous one) ...Berry Berenson Perkins came to it! She was sitting in front of the fireplace and noticed a book on the table right in front of her! "Schiaparelli"!! She said to Rebecca..."who is this who lives here?? This book is about my grandmother!!!"

    Sadly; I didn't meet her; more sadly, she was on her way to see her son perform a music thing in Florida; and was on one of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center on 9/11. SOB!!!
    In any case.,,,,,,that is my story! I think it is a good one! A great life is full of great stories!! My motto!!!

  2. I forgot to say......I adore Dante and how there are special areas of hell reserved for certain people who do certain things! Wonderful!!!

  3. Time to set up my insect "shrine" for summer!
