While I'm organizing my many design nerd photos (!!!) over the weekend, I wanted to introduce this lovely lady. I've been reading her autobiography which I purchased in her home town.
She's famously known as the owner of this little bauble.
Her book is wonderful for some light spring/summer reading. She retells the story of her life, from childhood in the Colorado mining towns to society in D.C., Newport, Palm Beach and Bar Harbor. It is a really wonderful story, painted with both tragedy and excitement. I really love how her narrative perfectly encapsulates the spirit of the time.
