Easter 2010

Sarah brought hats and silk flowers on Saturday night, so while the men were at Priesthood meeting, we made Easter hats. A glue gun is a powerful tool. I wanted to look as much like Camilla Parker-Bowles as I could. Second to Mamie Eisenhower, she is my ideal fashion icon. Both Camilla and Mamie are such non-threatening couture queens. Mamie, because she's dead, and Camilla because she isn't very pretty with that scrunched up face and pointy teeth.
I understand she loved Prince Charles a long time before she married him. They spent some time making shameful phone calls with tawdry conversations and delighted in adulterating each other.

Is that anything like having your lawn aereated? I don't know.

I'm glad I have my hat; it makes me feel like royalty. So posh.

It's amazing how a hat can make you look all British and Royal, isn't it?

Marcia said...

Sarah is pretty awesome.

And now the four of you will do a My Fair Lady turn, jump up from your seats and tell the nearest horse to move its bloody arse.

Ann said...

Wait. I can't count. Now the THREE of you . . .

Okay that photo is great stuff. You look so chic. You also seem to be on a role. Go kick some novel-writing arse! I dare you to spend a session or two pounding keys with that hat on your head. Now that would be a fun photo.

btw, Easter this year was nearly perfect for me. I enjoyed a session of conference with other people in the ward. I sat on the floor and ate lunch with a bunch of the kids. After that I wandered around the area and all of Harlem seemed to be on parade. So many people of color out and about in their Easter best. Is there anything more striking than an older African American woman with her easter bonnet? Those ladies don't mess around. The blend of neighborhood, clothing, and skin was like African violets. Better than african violets. And the weather was spot-on.
