Spread a little light with three little bird candle bowls (18 euro) by Little Acorns Pottery. Handmade in the Tuscan countryside by Scottish studio potter Kirstie Marie Mathieson, the cobalt blue bowls make a lasting gift for loved ones across the miles and for ourselves this winter and beyond. Sitting snuggly side by side, the little birds convey a feeling of togetherness, joy and positivity in these difficult times.
As I learned since, managing other people isn so much the art of orchestrating plans but, as Mintzberg suggests, one of guiding teams through plans gone awry.

Although all of these stores have locations in NYC, I find their Miami hubs to be the best in terms of merchandise, display, and sales associates. I found 2 adorable dresses at Atrium, which I excited to share very soon..
Genetic engineering has been utilised to produce a range of silk based biomaterials capable of promoting mineralisation to aid bone regeneration via biomimetic routes. Silk fusion proteins, where the silk domain is a derivative of the major ampullate dragline Spidroin 1 from Nephila Clavipes, consisting of a 15mer repeat of a 33 amino acid consensus sequence (SGRGGLGGQG AGAAAAAGGA GQGGYGGLGSQGT)15, were designed to bind to target minerals, silica and hydroxyapatite, through the incorporation of specific binding peptides.The R5 silicifying peptide (SSKKSGSYSGSKGSKRRIL) found in diatoms, was selected for silk silica composites, the location of the R5, N vs C terminal on the silk repeating unit, was assessed with respect to silicifying capabilities. The VTK peptide (VTKHLNQISQSY), identified via phage display was selected for hydroxyapatite binding, samples compared had the VTK peptide attached to the N, C and both termini of the silk repeating unit.
