SF Friday

What a week this has been! I'm sure most of you {as I am} are still following the news about the life and work of Steve Jobs. As a "brands person" I always admired how he created a company that was completely consumer driven, meaning that he listened to what his customers wanted and didn't try to outdo his competitors. Can you imagine how great it would be if the government functioned more like them and less like it does right now?
This card was totally appropriated for today because it was sent to me from Jobs town: San Francisco. I want to thank Lena from La Petite Coquin who also sent me one last year and has a lovely blog that I love, especially her Friday cocktail postings!

Here are this week's links:
90 Years of Gucci

Have a fantastic weekend and remember to have some fun!!!
