Happy Birthday Patti Smith

Posted by Picasa

Today is the birthday of Patti Smith, singer-songwriter, poet, artist and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer. My daughter Misha and I are long-time Patti Smith fans. But why the corkscrew with the fuzzy armpits? Because in the hands of Misha, that corkscrew does a mean rendition of "Dancing Barefoot," sounding just like Patti Smith while doing her moves.

Happy Birthday, Patti!

Note: Anna G Corkscrew is from Alessi and was designed by Alessandro Mendini. Tall Husband won her at a fantastic charity event, some years back, at Ligne Roset here in Houston.
