My Inspiration

A few days ago, when I was poking about my favourite second time around store looking for clothes that fit me, I stumbled upon a real treasure. It was a beautifully simple dress of red raw silk, hand made by a talented someone who took great care with the details…the workmanship was of a very high quality. It was priced rediculously low – maybe whoever priced it didn’t realize what they had. In any case, I couldn’t leave the store without it.

The dress is several sizes smaller than I am and I suspect I’ll never be able to get into it. At some point I’ll probably give it away to my friend’s tall and willowy teenager. But for now it hangs in my bedroom, giving me inspiration and making me smile every time I see it.
