I created the diorama……an artist [Odile Bailloeul] designed the mice.  My friend in Paris, Ms. Baudina sewed up the mice.  My sister Wini and her friend Sharon designed and sewed the costumes.

My KITCHEN overflow….ith!

CHRISTMAS EVE with Jorge and his sister Nicole

They were on their way to the ski resorts………..NO SNOW…………so they dropped in for bubbly instead of the slopes..  George is a decorator who worked on the Bergdorf Christmas windows…………and his sister is a model in Miami……..and both are just the sweetest!
