I'll tell thee a tale...

Within a short time Scheherazade was conducted by her father to the palace, and was admitted to the presence of the sultan. They were no sooner alone than the sultan ordered her to take off her veil. He was charmed with her beauty; but perceiving her tears, he demanded the cause of them.

Instead of returning any answer, Scheherazade addressed these words to the sultan: "Will your majesty permit me to indulge in a story?"


-- The Arabian Knights

There's something about putting on silks that instantly creates a fantasy. Ellantha and I hit the Solange 50% off sale yesterday, and after that we romped about in our new garb. The Sultan set for boys comes complete with shoes and a turban and a cloak (not shown), and Ellantha's pretty wisp of nothing enhances her skin and prim footed sandals. The sale is definitely worth a visit, even for first-time silk buyers like myself (and I know what I'm wearing for Halloween this year).
