It's Like Catnip....
He loved it...
Zar got to the numbers first. He insisted on first come, first served... I never said that he was a gentleman...
At least he insisted on gentlemanly clothes for meeting Daisy for the first time...Gray suede trousers, a yellow suede vest, silk cravat and a special shirt. The shirt is made of a piece of fabric that is saved for special occasions.
It is from a fine cotton lady's nightgown from 1840. How do I know? It was in tatters when I got it, but one piece had initials and the date 1840 embroidered in fine cross stitch! That dates it at 175 years old! The fabric is still good, even if the nightgown was falling apart at the seams...
Poor Daisy! She drew #3. I managed to get the full body makeover, but she still has to be dressed. So... She will stay wrapped in silk until after I get this written and posted.
I am not too worried. Tessie will punch him in the eye for his dastardly deeds, if he doesn't cut it out!
Daisy is hemming and hawing about her hair color. That's the shade she wanted, now she is wondering if she should go back to her natural dark brown.
Maybe by tomorrow I can settle her down and get her to choose. I kind of like the blond. Maybe she will like it more, once I get it styled.
I should get back in there and see what is going on. The first thing I am going to do is kick Zar out! He needs an etiquette lesson or two.
Back to work.
See you tomorrow.
