gifts…all wrapped up and tied with a “puff”

all wrapped up and ready to go… I love getting special orders that will be given as gifts!

this week I “rushed” to design and create two dresses for a lady’s grandaughters! she said one of the girls is having a birthday next week and she couldn’t buy for just one, … if she was going to buy one a dress, she has to buy for the other !!!

she calls herself the “doting grandma”

so off these two dresses go… all wrapped up and tied with a “cecilia cassini hair puff” !!!

HOSE ??? PANTY HOSE ???????

Have you ever heard of “PANTY HOSE” ??? I don’t think I have ever ever heard of “pantyhose”

until Kate – you know the new princess! – started showing up in every magazine and newspaper !!!

You see, “PANTYHOSE” are tights ! Yes, tights – the kind we are used to wearing with a dress !

The only difference is that these “Pantyhose” that Kate is wearing are skin color, so we couldn’t really tell she was covering her legs.

Supposedly, it was the fashion a long time ago (up until the 80’s) to wear “hose” to make the leg look smooth and pretty!

Well, Kate has brought back the trend! Everyone is now thinking about wearing hose. So I tried a pair on! NOT COMFY at all.

I am not too sure Kate is happy wiggly herself into those “hose” either but she HAS TO ! Yes, it is one of the (or maybe only) fall back of being part of the Royal family!

BUILDING AN ORPHANAGE… OPERATION SHANTI

down dog, up dog, puppy dog, …

A couple of weeks ago I took my yoga (yes, ! I do yoga !!!) and helped to raise $10,000 for Operation Shanti

to build an orphanage in India – the birthplace of yoga!

(see if you can find me!!!)

Can you imagine not having parents or a home to make you feel safe and loved? Well, as you know, so many

people around the world suffer from hunger, lonliness and danger.

Together with about 100 people, we gathered and did a two hour long yoga class led by some of my ┬ámom’s friends

(yes, my mom is a yoga teacher!) …

In order to build an orphanage for these children in India, Operation Shanti  needs $80,000.

In just one two hour yoga class, $10,000 was raised!

Wow!

down dog, up dog, puppy dog… no matter what you call it, … helping people always feels good!

as my mom would say, NAMASTE !!!
