New Scarf Proves its Worth!
Here's an important Style Lesson from a Nana: CPW (cost per wearing) is not the only measure of a garment's worth. GEV (grandchild entertainment value) should be factored in as well.
For example, a certain small person was becoming the tiniest bit fractious after a morning of visiting--we took her to visit the great-grands, who manipulated us into getting back into the car for a half-hour drive to visit our niece and her wee one -- and we all know the options for fun in a car seat are limited.
But we also know grandmothers have a few tricks up their sleeve, and in this case, Nana had one wrapped around her neck. I just got it last week -- it's a small-tablecloth-size in quite a fine fabric, perfect for draping.
Une Femme never shows you this particular scarf-tying method, does she?! Maybe she doesn't know the value of a good game of peek-a-boo . . .
It's fun! Try it! One more time . . . Now wait a second, build the suspense, in a puzzled voice, ask "Where's Nola?"
