Chances are, you are getting ready to head out for a night of celebrating. Or maybe you're just getting ready to hunker down, getting comfy to count down with Dick Clark - oops, did I just date myself? I meant to say Ryan Seacrest. I know, I know, what am…


Chrysanthe-Mom

Funny thing happened when I went to visit my parents. My mom freaked out when saw my beautiful blue chrysanthemum brooch made of felt that I bought from my friend Rhea's company, Digs, www.digs.com. As you can see from the photo, these brooches are wonderful and original. I can understand…
