Well, it was 83 degrees in the Bay Area yesterday and yours truly was not prepared for the heat wave. I wished for icy drinks all day but, alas, Mr. Jean Jean and I have a tiny dorm-size fridge here in our temporary digs and the freezer is barely big enough to hold a bag of peas - let alone a tray of ice cubes. It made me wish for a second that this 1940s brooch was real! It is made of lucite and shaped like an ice cube and tongs, with the rotating cube etched with a cursive "M." Pretty cool (ha ha ha haaaa) and headed to the shop today.
