Chandeliers always remind me of Breakfast at Tiffany's, and my elegant friend, Joanna.
As a single young women living in Manhattan,
I would often meet my girlfriends in front of Tiffany's.
We would go inside and browse all the time.
The shine inside that store was magnificent.
After we browsed and dreamed a bit,
we would head over to The Plaza for a cocktail and some giggles.
I was playing with chandelier designs and created bookplates, remembering wonderful times with my friend Joanna at the Plaza.
She always made me laugh. Lost in designing, I often find myself remembering the true gifts of life, friends.
These designs were created with your inspiration of love and the richness you always added to my life. You know we both had our dreams come true, but I wish so much I could meet you today in front of Tiffany's and share all the shine we found in life. Well, someday I will see you in heaven, I sense your words whispering encouragement all the time.
I named this bookplate Joanna's Dream. The song for this post was her favorite, Moonriver, from Breakfast at Tiffany's.
