Bigger Isn't Always Better!

Growing up watching The Golden Girls I was in LOVE with Blanche. She was just so sassy and southern and exotic to my northeast sensibilities. She was the 'sexy' one on the show, and she had this small chest -- to my young mind that didn't make sense ( I was already well-programmed by society's 'bigger is better' standard for women ) and my mother would say 'It's not what you've got but how you use it". Amen!!!

I have a shop full of big things, big belts, heavily tooled purses and intricate stitching. Every once in a while I remember how lovely it is to stay small and maximize the tiniest piece of leather canvas. "..How you use it", indeed!!
