Well, having a mail-order service is really quite logical. No one wants to buy the old clothes in the store anyway. They want to choose their own fabric and style to have it custom made to fit them. It would be such an excitement to receive a catalogue in the mail, don't you think?
I recently discovered that Cristal Purr has quite a talent for making the most darling bonnets! I plan to get one for each of my dresses if I can convince her to go into business.
Have you seen the charming yellow one she gace to little Sonja for a Christmas gift? It is so sweet! I could almost eat it for dessert! (Teehee.)
Well, I enjoy sewing, playing piano, writing, taking care of Snowball, cooking, (the maids do most of it, but sometimes I do it for fun) and drawing. Samantha, Teresa and I had our first art lesson with a famous Italian artist recently. His name is Senor Fillippo Carravaggio! Isn't that a romantic name? He has a very interesting method of teaching. Not at all like Mrs. Millman's, I assure you! Hmm, the library...well i've heard (through various sources) that Alexandra plans to write a book about housecleaning, (?) and Mrs. Merriman will be writing one about household management as well. A compilation recipe book might be forthcoming as well, but as of the present our supply of books is sadly meager. Would you be interested in publishing a book of some sort? About horses, perhaps? What is your favorite thing to cook?
