ASHISH GUPTA……and his Runway Show……Feb 2018

MASTURBATE??  How often??  That could be the theme of Ashish’s new clothing line.  This is a thoughtless dig at American consumerism.

 

Tho I do find some of these designs lovely…I love all the Christmas Tinsel……..just like our Christmas trees.  Spot on!

But…it is the excess of American dollars that he needs……to buy his clothes.

CHRISTMAS in my Apartment

And not a mouse was stiring………they were all busy eating Santa’s cookies!

Dutch Poffertjes for Christmas Morning

My dear friend in London……Baudina……..sent me prezzies……..goodies from Fortnum and Mason in “Merry old’ England.


Baudina is from Holland so it was only fitting that I make some”pofferjes for ontbijten [breakfast].

With Vermont maple syrup…of course.

The mince pies….with vegan suet…..that is a change.

And these tiny, adorable gingerbread house fro Fortnum and Mason.  Delish!

 

LADA GAGA wishes you a MERRY CHRISTMAS

We can ask her the same question……….

MERRY CHRISTMAS from Andy Warhol’s CAT

Andy’s Greatest love was for his cats.  He once lived with his mother in an apartment on Lexington Avenue…and 25 cats.  His first cat was HESTER….then came SAM.……until he had 25 cats…..and gave them all the same name.

He wrote a book illustrated with hand colored lithographs ……….called “25 Cats named SAM and One Blue Pussy”………….void of text.
