1. No doubt, parents are upset about Christie Crummel’s resignation — enough so that about 60 of them called a meeting Tuesday with Highland Park High School principal Walter Kelly. Dirt is a-flying, so if you’d like to add your thoughts (on the record, I beg of you) give me a call: 214-523-5269.
We’ll have details in Friday’s issue of Park Cities People.
2. High school side-note: A blood drive is ongoing until 3:30 p.m. today in the HPHS cafeteria.
3. The American Institute of Architects’ big “Retrospect” exhibit kicks off this morning at NorthPark Center.
4. Free this weekend? Need ornamentation? Jewelry designer Darlene de Sedle has trunk shows starting 10 a.m. Friday and Saturday at Stanley Korshak.
Some sumptuous text from an online bio for de Sedle, who grew up around her father’s massive antiques collection and cites it as inspiration:
When I set out into jewelry-land I knew exactly where I was going. I wanted my gold to feel like pre-Columbian gold. I wanted to use every color stone imaginable; rainbow moonstones, aqua, tourmalines, citrines, and cabochons because of their soft feel.
And I wanted to bust out my credit card.
