EASTER PARADE on 5TH Avenue

Ale B MAKEUP was on 5th Avenue with her FASCINATOR hats.

Her philosophy…….LOVE WHO YOU ARE………..with her make-up line.

KEEP IT SIMPLE.  KEEP IT HEALTHY.  KEEP IT YOU.

EASTER PARADE on 5th Avenue

There were several thousand HATS today in the EASTER PARADE………walking down 5th Avenue.

These were my 25 faves.


She was FAB.  The hat……..the outfit….. the smile………..

and a compliment to the ladies on my hat!

More Ladies ready for the EASTER PARADE

Sassy, Saucy and two “old maids” are ready for the Easter Parade on 5th Avenue.


This year I only painted 10 new eggs……….

EASTER EGGS • Victorian Ladies

My new friend Judy is my muse for these ladies…..one is all dolled up for the races at Ascot.  Another is off to tea at the Ritz.

My friend Teddy came to my studio for a “play date”.

She was my stylist for these fashionable ladies……..one of which is in DRAG!

A bit dour………her beau left her for another!

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.
