DIANE von FURSTENBERG Porcelain Dinnerware

Housing Works Thrift store was having a fall sale.  I picked up a set of porcelain designed by Diane von Furstenberg………….a nice addition to my dining collections.

Before I dine on it………..I decided to draw it.

I added my silver creamer to the still-life.

I used 25 different GRAYS to create the art.

I had a little bit of help………from Barbie’s boy friend.  He decided which grays I would use.

HOUSING WORKS THRIFT • Spring event

Housing Works Thrift Store had their Spring Event last night…………and it was a great success.  300 shoppers were outside on line waiting for the 5pm opening.

Mark Hudson [ musician..producer] was there.

All of the proceeds go to victims of AIDS…..or HIV…….helping with the cost of meds…and rent.  It is a wonderful organization.

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.
