Yeah, weekend!

I'm sure everyone is busy getting ready for the holidays. Between gift shopping, card writing, baking and decorating there is no time to relax!! I hope you all take some time this weekend to enjoy the start of the holiday season :-)

I adore that photo. I cannot decide what I love best, that turban, her arched eyebrow, that hood with the tassel, the tile, that tea pot, or her look of "I vant to be alone -dahlink~"

I have always liked this soothing picture of Lisa Fonssagrives- great choice! Although its foggy in my memory sometime around 1990 I believe I worked with her son and maybe her daughter on a fashion piece for Mirabella Mag.

The model in the picture reminds me of my mother in the 50's. Beautiful.

I know! I'm swamped with an endless "to do" list. And look what I'm doing! ;^)

no luck finding just the right turbin , so i went to see a doctor friend of mine, popped in a couple of hair plugs to get me though the weekend.

i'll just do the famous ole''comb over', glue a bow in the back, slap on a pair of huge sunglasses, hit worth ave (palm beach)for brunch at 'taboo 'and i will fit right in !!
