Today's weather forecast was bleak. Cold and getting colder and windier through the day. I chose my warm gray sweater and my iciest looking earrings. I worried that I might look a bit like the Ice Queen, so I tried to lighten my mood with a bit of blue--my pottery shard necklace from the now defunct Red Door in Upperville.
My best student comment of the day: "Wow! I was just reading a biography of Queen Elizabeth and she was wearing those same earrings in a picture!"
Queen Elizabeth I has always been a hero of mine, a strong woman who survived and thrived against all odds. Who knew that we shared a taste for similar jewelry? If so, she would have loved shopping at the Sawmill Center in Cook Forest, PA.
