Follow Friday – Fancy Coat

15 Apr

Today’s Follow Friday is brought to you by Isobel’s fancy coat. Grandma gave her this fancy coat and intended it to be used only on formal occasions, but I know that if we saved it for some day she’d no longer fit into it when that day arrived. I think this is good advice for anyone, really: don’t wait for an excuse, wear your fancy coat today.

What is Follow Friday? It’s a Twitter meme that I have taken a couple steps further.  See my nomination for a Shorty Award for Follow Friday here. You can read more Follow Friday goodness here. Learn more about it in my FAQ.
