Chia and I are at my adult ballet studio a couple days a week while we are here in Seattle. Rainy weather is great for dancing, and The Ballet Studio is full of students this winter. Chia has a new favorite place to observe classes.
We are just back from a few days in Tucson at the Gem and Jewelry Show. This is the largest gem show in the States, and absolutely overwhelming. I came away with a watermelon tourmaline, which I will have the Florentine goldsmith make into a pendant for me this spring.
My spring calendar in Florence is filling up quickly with shopping clients mostly from Australia, UK, the States and Canada. My two daughters are making requests for themselves: short leather jackets to wear with jeans or over dresses, earrings from the goldsmith and some bright silk scarves so far…
As lovely as the sun and landscape was in Arizona, nothing can compare to Tuscany in my opinion. Raining there too right now, but spring is right around the corner!
