as most of you guys know, my daughter, Vanessa, lives in our Texas Hill Country,
in Wimberley, Texas.
she has a 5-year old son named Colt.
Coltie goes to school with a beautiful little girl, Tessa Hinds.
little Tessa has a large lump on her beautiful little face
which has been diagnosed as a rare
this little one must undergo Chemotherapy as treatment.
her family lives in this small town and my daughter tells me they have no way of paying
the medical expenses which will be incurred.
someone has started a "Go Fund Me" page for Tessa,
& my daughter has asked me to tell each of my readers about their plight.
at this time, with all the illegal immigration stuff going on in the news,
and knowing that they get everything FREE, I am shocked to find out that
our American children are denied treatment which could save their lives.
Wimberley, Texas is about 1 hour from Austin and 1 hour from San Antonio,
where her treatments will take place.
Wimberley is a beautiful little town, where country farmers and ranchers make up the
population. It is a place filled with quaint little shops, for week-end visitors, but is certainly not a place where high-paying jobs exist, or maybe where everyone has insurance, unless they're retired and on MediCare, which her family is not.
Here is a link to her GO FUND ME page
CLICK HERE TO DONATE TO TESSA I, personally, have nothing to do with this, except to help out as much as I can. This request is coming from my daughter, who is a mother of a small child. She told me she called the dad and told him we were going to use social media to help them...and he started crying. Hearing this made me cry. this is why we're here, folks. to help one another. please pass along the request if you think it warrants it. thank you guys so very much for reading !!
one of our friends just purchased a beautiful home site, of considerable size, where she will begin building soon. she has the most amazing home in Hunt, Texas, always open for her friends, family, dogs, etc. this gorgeous home was built a few years back, she and her husband collaborated on every single thing. she told me he spent 4 years digging/exploring for arrowheads (or points, as they are properly called) and, finally, she said he had 2 more months to finish so the house could be completed. and by completed she meant with a regulation sized tennis court, and all the appropriate surroundings, a pool fit for a country club, and a guest house or two. so, we already know the place in Cashiers will be wonderful. looking at these photos just makes me swoon. how about you? wouldn't it be fun to be her houseguest when she gets it all together?
modeled by Hailey Baldwin Beiber the Italian line collaborated with Anthony Baratta, an American interior designer who offices in NYC. His work is extremely colorful, so he was a perfect choice for these fabric designs.
I LOVE MaxMara, and this look is a major departure from their normal sleek, sophisticated, elegant pieces, but I LOVE THIS COLLECTION too.
If you're not afraid of this look, read on please....
