Yesterday, Nina and I went to the One of a Kind show at the merchandise mart in downtown Chicago with this dynamic duo. I feel so bad about not taking many photos, I snapped this one of Frieda and Laura in the elevator of my building on our way out.
There were lots of beautiful things as always. If I could have bought anything there, it would have been a silky soft sheepskin coat, but it was way out of my budget ;-( so I settled for some caramels from my favorite local truffle and caramel maker Katherine-Anne. I bought a box of rosemary and sea salt caramels that are just to die for, they are new this season and aren’t listed on her website, but I bet she would send some to you if you asked.
We ended our day with a lovely meal at the french restaurant La Sardine, downstairs in my building.
Laura’s husband also joined us for dinner, he happens to work for an architect a couple blocks away from me.
Nina never goes anywhere with out a sketch pad.
It was a lovely day and a fantastic meal with good friends and my daughter Nina, doesn’t get much better than that.
