Winter Snow

In the depth of winter,
I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.

Albert Camus ( 1913 - 1960)

Winter in on my head,
but eternal spring in my heart!

Victor Hugo ( 1802 - 1885)

Walking on the white fluffy snow,
I feel like an angel on a cloud!

but then I think of Snow White!

I can't decide which one I want to be!

Every winter,
When the great sun has turned his face away,
The earth goes down into a vale of grief,
And fasts, and weeps, and shrouds herself in sables,
Leaving her wedding-garlands to decay -
Then leaps in spring to his returning kisses.
~Charles Kingsley

Christmas Card - Creating your own card!

It is always fun and lovely
to create your own Christmas card

with your own photograph and, you can always
add other images
that you can easily
find on line these days.

Once you created the image
can also print on any
color and textured
computer printer paper,
and send out as a card to your loved one.


From home to home,
and heart to heart,
from one place to another.
The warmth and joy of Christmas brings us
closer to each other.

Sample Room

Watching Oscar Re La Renta's video of
his sample room ... that brought back those
years I was working with the late Mary Vinson.

It is a privilege to have a sample room
with seamstresses, cutter and pattern maker,
and sewing machine and other equipment and
rolls of sample fabrics, trimmings and supplies etc
It is so convenient to walk to the next room and
"create" anything and make any alterations.
Any great design vision, still need all the
relevant people to materialize it!
Sample room is a place where all great creations begin.

Wellington Boots

A wet gray day in Manhattan!
What could be better than walking around
in a pair Wellington Boots (Wellies)
either in the city or a stroll in the country!

Don't forget
to get a cup of hot chocolate or cider
(with a dash of Whisky)
to pamper yourself!

Look at these brilliant colors!

In my Wellington boots
at Southey Farm, Devon.

An Autumn Afternoon with Hans Zimmer

Every season gives us
fresh ideas and inspiration ...
and magic is found in the little moments
of our lives ...

I want to share my footsteps with you
and this piece of music that
inspire me in everyway
of my lives ...

"Delicious autumn!
My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird
I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns."
- George Eliot -

I came across this fancy piano!

This is a collaboration between CrystalRoc and Steinway & Sons, an addition of fully-crystallized, custom-built grand pianos to its collection of exclusive musical instruments.

Encrusted with over a million, individually-positioned Swarovski crystal elements, no two pianos will be alike, as the color and design of crystallization will be personalized according to the wishes of each individual client.
