THE CIRCUS COMES TO TOWN

And performed in my apartment on Christmas morn.

A most unusual and beautiful diarama designed by OLGA TARAN of Russia.

And this wonderful world of the Circus is performed in a box that is only 10″ tall.

Olga’s attention to the minutest detail………….makes it all the more exquisite.

Countessa Olga Romanoff is seated in the first row.

The dancing bear was trained by Romanians .

 

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

and……she wants to know……if you’ve been NAUGHTY or NICE……...

We can ask her the same question……….
