There were five gals - Ruthie, Belle, Linda Sue, Elizabeth, and Winifred - who decided to start a sorority called the Fine Penmanship Society. The sisters (and three were really sisters - look at the three in the middle of the picture - don't they favor each other?) were a very colorful bunch. Ruthie was the wild one of the bunch and Winnie (Winifred) was a little loopy. The sisters, Belle, Linda Sue, and Elizabeth were very thoughtful and tried to keep everyone in line. It was decided each should have a special "possibilities" box in which to store their favorite papers, pens, and inks. I believe they were the first official scrapbookers and altered artists. I was lucky enough to find one of the boxes and oh my, what treasures were inside! I do believe I must have found Ruthie's box because there were calling cards - most containing names - shall we say of the 'male species'. Oh and some VERY racy love letters. Perhaps I'll share some of the treasures here on the blog one day.
Now keep in mind when you look at this picture that I had just come home from a long day at work, it was about 90 degrees in my studio, AND I don't like to have my picture taken. But rush rules are rush rules so here you go.
Untie a ribbon in your life – you might find an adventure!
