The Hope diamond

I found a piece of paper at a party recently,
and this was written on it....

"your diamonds are not in far distance, hidden in mountains,
or in the depths of the seas.....
they are in your very own backyard....
only if you dig for them...."
Che Oracle

here's hoping there's another 'hope' diamond buried in my back garden....

45.52-carat hope diamond

Eames Elephant

In 1945 Charles and Ray Eames designed the plywood elephant, but it never went into production.
Last year it was made but limited to 1,000 pieces per color (red and natural).
For the first time, Vitra is now making a plastic version of the elephant,
for children, its intended target market.
