My old hourglass is doing just fine… Sand’s dripping away, arriving at ninety plus nine. Happy Birthday to Me, may I be of good cheer! To give thanks for thriving & surviving one hell of a year!

Does she still appear on HSN from time to time?   I haven't seen her in a while.

She is marvelous!  Such a joy to listen to to her in interviews.  Her sense of style is unmatched.  All the patterns, colors, styles, etc. would send me on a trip if I had to stay in the room pictured here. There is a documentary about her titled "Iris" and coloring books also.  She may be too avant garde for QVC but I would love to see her with Katrina Szish.

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being positive what could go right.

I really loved what she said on one of her HSN shows----she remarked that she didn't follow trends, fads, or gimmicks, instead she designed what she thought would make women look their best....!!!!  BRAVO!!!!
