It's time for some holiday giving...welcome to day 1





I 'll be home for Christmas with Barbra Streisand
( this one has very special meaning to me)
and she brought along
MODA Lissa, who sent this along by designer Lila Tueller
and in her sack was this jelly roll
not one you could eat...
but filled with SPIRIT nevertheless...


If you fancy it...

Santa's line was on DO not Disturb...lol
And wait till Dec. 27th, to see who won...

ps. one of these days is a BONUS day,
which means the winner could win far more than this..
I am just saying...Ü



Note: all POSTS for the next 7 days 
have been prepared over a week ago.
I really am RESTING,
although my definition is clearly different
from many lol...
I will be sewing new projects...
See you all on the 27th...
