There is a story attached to the following picture, a few years ago I was on holiday in New York, and yes it was fab. My delima was to find something made in NY to bring home, I could not find any thing that did not cost an arm and leg. Eventually I found this frame which I have to admit was worth the wait. Since then I have fallen in love with the designs of Diane Markin, hand made in Calafornia.
Later I found a frame made with recycled New York Glass.(beautiful)
The moral of the story is "Seek and ye shall find" ;)
