Elegance on a dime

by Jodie
(Turner Maine)

First I would like to say how much that I enjoy your news letters and the photos that you share. You are truly an inspiration.

I find elegance in the use of a china tea cup, wearing a set of pearls and making sure that my entire family is dressed cleanly, our clothes ironed freshly and our shoes polished.

Keeping our home clean and clutter free helps me to feel elegant.

I find joy in letter writing; using fountain pens and beautiful stationary topping it off with a beautiful stamp.

Listening to Bach and Mozart as well as Vivaldi makes me feel elegant.

Please keep writing. This was by far my favorite post that you have written. I have read all of your back issues. Again....thank you Eunice.

Dear Elegant Woman, I am so grateful for your web site ... I am so grateful for what my Mom (who was from the South) and has taught me so much on Manners, Etiquette and to be Classy and it has worked. From telling me to eat one piece of popcorn or chip one piece at a time .... and always using my napkin, which is always on my lap or using the correct utensil when eating .... I could go on and on. Your web site is the best.

Thank You.
Lucinda Jane
