My grandmother is a force to be reckoned with. Even at 80 she still runs circles around me. As a child she engraved on me ” A woman’s beauty lasts only as long as her disposition stays sweet”. She is THE essential girl’s guide to modern manners, etiquette and grace within a home. Never mind the fact that she bottled her enterprise in the 40′s, it is still ever present in her home today. Polite with a capitol “P”, her dynasty built entirely on class, sophistication and a 1950′s Continental Mark II Lincoln. Grandma is the template of homemaker perfection, even Martha Stewart would deem her second to none.
