A vintage  photo of a group of women, all wearing fancy hats, prompted this mini collage. After I applied some embellishments, I added a phrase which is a  twist on the phrase made famous by Olympia Dukakis’ character in Steel Magnolias. My version reads “what separates us from the apes is our ability to accessorize.”



  1. Love “Steele Magnolias”… actually, I love all art which positively illustrates connection between women… like your art, here.

    Thank you for that!

  2. Thanks Julie! Would love to hear how your play went…

  3. How sweet those little kittys are. They remind me of my own cat, Boots. He is curled up on his cat shelf in the window looking out into the neighborhood by night. He always has to keep watch.

      Thanks Diane…I can just picture your little guy keeping watch as my sister’s cat does the same thing. She thinks she’s a watch dog, growling at the neighbor dogs!

  4. My play went well. Exhausted today. And creating, still.

    The kitties are adorable!
