The women of today, the women of the days before: strong and wise, knowledgeable and well taught. The letters she may have written…
She held the keys to each and every room, supervised duties and servants, educated the children and was the oh, so ravishing host for all castle guests.
She knew by heart each corner and each stone, every porcelain gold dust and rose petals hand-painted cup, each manuscript from the library, everyone’s stories, everyone’s joys, everyone’s sorrows.
She wore long dresses, with lace and beautifully ornamented key chains (hence the chatelaine)
Organized, smart, fashionable, kind, firm, gentle, patient, strong. The back-bone of people around her.
Yup, she was the mistress of the castle.
