lady uppity with wallpaper 001

May I introduce Lady Uppity? She is an adventurous woman from the New World,. Accomplished, spirited, and not afraid to use her iron fist, topped by a feathered fan to make her point. She sits in front of our former Kings’ Cake crown wallpaper, confident and determined to manifest her destiny. Many thanks to my friend Maya who gleaned the great book Uppity Women of the New World, by Vicki Leon. A brilliant compendium of one page profiles of women with grit from the 15th through the 18th century.

Perhaps the wallpaper now befits a Queen, not just a King?
