My 25 Ideas for CHRISTMAS GIFTS

It was a fun day of shopping………….5th Avenue……….a flea market………a silver emporium………and a crafts show.  [I am exhauested].  But I did make 5 purchases…………gifts for family…….friends………and my stockbroker!

The TAXIDERMY DEER HEAD………..was NOT among my purchases.

However…………..this Courtly Check Moose Head at MacKenzie Childs did tempt me…………..at $15,000 [cough]………….but it was the $695 delivery charge that killed the purchase.

SKETCHES from my Dining Table

I am running out of space on my dining table………pencils taking over……..and I just ordered 200 more.


CLICK on the HONEY POT…………..

I am making “20 minute” sketches of whatever lands on the table in front of me.

MY TABLE SETTING FOR TURKEY DAY

IT is not yet written in stone.  I may change it tomorrow. BUT I will do a pumpkin soup made with pomegranate juice……..heavy cream and a dash of sherry.

I will definately change out the flatware……….this stuff is ugly.  Only sterling will do.

TURKEY DAY IS HERE

But….if we eat HAM  then we have to murder a PIG. Maybe we should just eat a cabbage and give thanks.
