"Spring is about change, but sometimes it's good to remember that we all come from somewhere. The Flint pillow reminds me that I managed to claw my way out of a crap town in New Jersey and make it to the big city." -Jonathan Adler
Yep... Jonathan Adler and I are from the same part of Jersey, in fact, we rode the same bus briefly (I was a teeny tiny little noodle!).
Fortunately, I have rosier memories of my early days growing up there... and perhaps some good taste was in the water.
