We are all back from Chicago and it was grand. Frigid, but grand. It was a pretty severe shock to Polly's system and she is nursing a cold from the adventure. Two of Polly's granddaughters - Shelby and Rachel accompanied me on the train. Later, we met up with more family members in Chitown. There were several reasons for the trip, but the main one was Rachel's birthday.One of the things we did was to redeem a gift certificate the girls received for Christmas. A gift certificate for Tiffany's. Both girls used it to to get silver post earrings. I had never been inside Tiffany's before. I'm not really a jewelry kind of gal, but Tiffany's could make me change my ways. Not only a beautiful store with beautiful wares, the merchandising was fabulous. I wanted to take pictures of it, but because of security reasons, no pictures allowed. Too bad, as the theme in the store was stitchery. Each showcase had needles, vintage spools of thread and embroidery hoops all to display the jewels. The juxtaposition of two facets of femininity was effective. Here are Shelby and Rachel outside the landmark Michigan Avenue store.That's Polly taking their picture.
Wicked was great and we were so impressed with all the talent involved.
We are now back home, back to earth, and back to work. There are a few new projects on the horizon, a pending blog-hop with give-aways, and much more. Keep warm.
