C - Clever


A fearless southern girl is . . .

Clever
She is inventive and original. Never does she worry about what she hasn't got, because she uses all that she does have to her advantage. Gone With the Wind provides the best example: After Atlanta was burned and Scarlett fell into poverty, she snatched down Tara's velvet curtains and whipped herself up a fine dress. A fearless southern girl adeptly repurposes old things to suit new needs without ever batting an eye.

Another excellent theme idea. Cleverness is probably one of the best personality traits one can have. :-)

Good morning, A to Z'er! Now following your blog: although I'm born and raised in Florida, you know we aren't truly a part of the South. ;-) We're planning a future move to Alabama, so I'll be working on all my southern charm. Thanks for a cute idea!

Hi Lucy, so you have a son called Duncan? It's such a nice name isn't it? What a clever choice!

This is me, Duncan D. Horne, visiting you from the A-Z challenge, wishing you all the best throughout April and beyond.
