A Chorus Line

Mary and I went to the  San Fernando swap meet. Friends told us  we could find old stuff there. It is a huge  flea market with tons of new stuff. We found some old frames and I found a  Miriam Haskell  brooch. Can you believe it?  Anyway, these leggings struck me as funny, so I took pics of them.

Genie's Christmas Party

For Christmas, I decorated my friend Genie's house in holiday cheer.

This was a special Christmas party, because, Genie, and two other friends, and I worked 30 years ago in the garment industry. We've kept in touch but haven't been able to  get all 4 of us together at the same time. Well, this December we did. And what a hoot.   
P.S.   Sorry about the duplicate video, I can't seem to delete it.

Well, it looks like our feline and canine relatives had a great Christmas too.
Hope all of you did,  as well!

Present for Sheryl

For Christmas, I had to do something creative for my friend Sheryl. She makes me printed gift and price tags  every year. This year was no exception. We exchange presents yesterday, and boy am I thrilled. Tons of gorgeous tags in all sizes and  prints. They are  like gold to me. Anyway,  she makes Christmas ornaments and  other holiday paper designs, so I  bought  lots of ribbon, charms, and paper items for her to use. I put them in decorated jars and  bottles I made from vintage music, ribbons and ceramic findings. I also decorated a file folder and a plastic shoe box.
