How’s THIS for a Super Bowl 50 ring? Today’s Valentine’s Day selection is the redesigned engagement/50th anniversary ring I made for my mother last year, using her original center diamond and baguettes. Obviously you can’t buy this particular ring but I can use this style of platinum setting for any custom engagement ring. If you’re […]

I’ve written before that the most beneficial way to read a newspaper is in its print form, even though it’s not always beneficial for newspapers to continue to produce a print edition these days. But as long as print exists, I’ll read it, because act of turning the pages means I come across articles that […]

Every once in a while, while I’m poking around vintage-clothing websites, I see something that makes me go … Well, I have found my ideal headwear for the coming winter on 1stdibs.com. I dare you to look at this 1970s hat/rhinestone mask combo and tell me it isn’t sooooo me. I swear on my cats […]

MrB and I went last night’s Gerald Loeb Awards, which, as the Loebs website explains, “honor excellence in business and financial journalism that both informs and protects the private investor and the general public.” I wrote about the Loeb Awards in 2010 when my gorgeous friend Alix Freedman — formerly of the Wall Street Journal, […]

Someone, somewhere, declared that June 4 is National Hug Your Cat Day.  It’s also Throwback Thursday. To cover both these events, here is a December 2013 photo of me hugging a very disgrunted FitzRoy. And here is a July 2014 hug bestowed upon a somewhat startled Purrkoy. You can follow both my Exotic Shorthair kittehs […]
