Fabulous Washington Hostesses:
Evalyn Walsh McLean

Random trait: Used to put the Hope Diamond on the collar of her Great Dane to shock her dinner guests.

Buy: Alligator-embossed crystal bone dog collar ($82, The Posh Pooch).

Read: Father Struck It Rich by Evalyn Walsh McLean

Do: Get rid of all bad luck charms, even if valuable; stroll by the Indonesian Embassy, the original Walsh-McLean home.

I love the anecdote about the Hope diamond on her dog's collar. There's a great place in Seattle for pups called "High Maintenance Bitch". You'd love it.

my name is Joseph McLean Gregory and I see you have a beautiful picture of my great grandmother. What a beauty. I too have a book out on her called, QUEEN OF DIAMONDS and I have a new book coming out at the end of May called,HOPE DIAMOND. Its a coffee table book celebrating the 50th annvisary of the HD in the Smithsonian. Please visit my website. Do you think we can link up to each other? Do let me know. Hope so. Thank you and enjoy the site.
