JUDITH LEIBER and her HANDBAGS at the MAD Museum

Judith Lieber has been in the handbag industry for sixth five years…..starting out in Budapest before moving to New York.


Many of her handbags…….fascinating and luxurious…………are encrusted with Swarovski crystals.  She began her company in 1964 and designed her last handbag in 2004.

Her handbags cost about $5000………the older ones sell for a lot more.

The Rose Garden of Mrs. Edsel Ford

When I was in High School in Detroit……. [Cass Tech]…………in the Art Department I was selling my watercolors at the Detroit Artist Market.  Every summer Mrs. Edsel ford would host a garden party in her rose garden.  I was invited to show and sell my watercolors…..[I sold about 50 pieces].

Eleanor was always a patron of the arts and I was thrilled to be invited………to her home and the Rose garden

 

 

 

POSTCARDS from PARIS

The GOLDEN AGE of postcards was from 1895 to 1915.  The parlor in every home had an album.  Hours were spent perusing, collecting and showing their postcards to friends and family.
