Keep Your Eyes Peeled

The only autographs you've given lately are to the UPS guy after your post-happy hour online shopping splurges

Local glassblower Gini Garcia is the artist behind beautiful displays at La Fruteria, Hilton Palacio del Rio and Hotel Valencia's Orange Grove, pictured. It houses more than 100 pieces of handblown citrus, each signed by the stars, musicians and athletes who have stayed at the hip hotel. Look carefully for your favorite Spurs' and singers' names, including the former Shelton-Lamberts.

And enjoy the fruits of their fame.
