The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show is always just in time for Valentine's Day. Who's lucky? You or me? I think both.
At this event, there are people from all corners of the planet, in tent after tent and hotel after motel, all over Tucson, each filled to the rafters with treasures - well - some people don't have treasures ... you do have to know where to look, but if you do, it is amazing what you can find.
In Tucson, I get to connect with some designers that I only see once a year. And I get to see what they have been up to design wise. (What could be better? Reality is, I only work with people I like, I have to not only appreciate their work but also like them as human beings.) It makes for a most excellent week!
So behold below, what they have done!
Then ... next week, we will have the other half of the Tucson Show at 1906. This year we ventured into the world of minerals . . . fossils, geodes, ammonites, skulls, horns, coral - wait until you hear about Captain Doug - those who dance in this world are fascinating and quirky.
But focus, Valentine's Day is next week.
