The last visitors of summer are these ruby throated humming birds. Reminds me of our last airlane flight. We were all in a line to land. I guess we all have to take our turn....patience is truly a virtue.
This morning, while on cria watch, I happen to see an old movie with Grace Kelly. She was a wife candidate for Prince Albert, circa 1910, the Crown Prince of England. The movie was called The Swan. I was intereseted in the lace shawl which was really a mantilla. She had it over her hair, then it slid onto her shoulders as a wrap. This was supposed to be a suggestion to the Prince that he choose her to be his Queen. This would have been easy for him to invision since she already looked like a queen.
That is one lesson my father taught me, dress the part; it will seem you fit the part. I have had several folks to tell me that if you dress and act as if you are already there, then it will seem a natural when you are a candidate for a new position, job, or assignment. If an employer has to choose a new member of the team or committee has to choose its chair, would be easy choice if you look like you could step up, serve well without training wheels!
I have such a piece of lace that I will include as a shawl over a white wool suit. The birdcage veil would dress up this design for a late fall wedding. The ostrich feather is from the Namib desert. The base is alpaca felt over a headband lends a nice anchor for the design.
Looking forward to my freshly roasted coffee from The Coffee Bean in Canon, GA......!!

I believe that we all have this day to make things right. If we could just change one thing that we are all guilty of, things would be so much better on a grander scale. I have given a promise to not: complain,criticize,gossip,nor whine. Join me?
