IMG_1741The mantel has long served as the focal point of the family room, making the mantel clock something of much significance.

From their intricate detailing, ornate facing, solid frames and resounding chimes – their nobility has a sense of grace and stature at the very same time.

I am so thrilled to have recently been given this heirloom mantel clock, passed down to me through the generations that was originally owned by my Great Aunt Ashley, for whom I was named. I can’t wait to get it restored to its former glory and hear the beautiful chimes.

Walk like a lady.008

The grace and elegance of a woman’s gate in heels with a high worn skirt simply cannot be matched.

Is the simple act of walking an art form in itself?  Certainly. As a gracious host or joining in as a guest at an entertaining evening event, the ability to glide through the room with a simple sweeping movement is an enviable joy some women hold over others less classically taught.

I admit I Googled it … “How to walk like a lady.” Searching how I might share with you the steps you might take to add this certain swagger to your very own list of heirloom qualities.

Not certain what I was looking for, trying to capture the movement into a simple list of how-to’s – chin up, toes pointed, hips leading. I was reminded by my search of the practicing techniques once used, rather rarely today I would think, of placing a nice hardcover book atop your head and walking a straight and sweeping line.

Much like the taste of your favorite recipe or the smell of the sweetest scent, it seems that I can’t quite capture treasured walk of a lady into words. Though, its sweet throwback grace is recognizable when you see it present in today’s society and it’s simply lovely!
