she would have been

Every once in a while she is, and I can feel it in things, like the way she polishes silver, and uses ridiculous things like silver ice buckets when other families come for dinner with their kids or sometimes just because it's someone's birthday. The way she always helped perfect my appearance for formals, how careful she is decorating the Christmas tree. The way she loves to walk through Sak's even though we'll never buy anything, the way she revels in fabric at the craft store. She's really usually more a mom than an elegant person though.--violet9ish
