    The Flapper feather dress is adorned with pearls and feathers from an unmarred page in a heavily marked up copy of The Great Gatsby, which I saved from the thrift bin. It is a beautiful book and deserves a beautiful tribute.

    .......is if the band in back is too high.

    The bra band should be parallel to the ground all the way around.

    If the bra you’re wearing is too big around, it will ride up in back and not be able to do it’s job of supporting you. This problem is also likely to then cause the bra straps to slide off your shoulders.

    Let’s get it taken care of!

This is The Witch Hare, based on the lore of an Irish fairy; it is a miniature fairy dress made from dried grass and cattail fluff perched in a shadowbox on a bed of dark green moss with two sprouting mushrooms.

    APRIL*
    By John Galsworthy
    Starry-eyed is April morn,
    Rain bells glitter on the thorn.
    Birds are tuning down the lane
    Patter song of fallen rain.
    Spring can grieve, but Spring can be
    Very life of minstrelsy!

    Is it time to “clarify”?  A few shampoo bars ago I looked in the mirror and thought “WOW”.  Then the next time “Ohhhh, my hair feel funny”.  It was time to clarify.  When you use conventional hair products you tend to switch around a lot and you are using different mixtures of ingredients.  When you find a shampoo bar that your hair LOVES you are loyal.  Every once in awhile you need to mix it up.  I did a simple vinegar rinse and my hair was “right as rain”.
