Hi All!

I'm sorry I've been out of pocket for the last week. Between helping my dad settle into a new living situation, traveling out of town, and coping with some minor health issues, I've fallen down on my blogging all together.

We are about through with our First Finishing School project. If you were on the teacher's list and have not posted your week yet and would like to, please contact me.

Coming up: We will be transferring the posts to the Finishing School Blog. Also, we will issue a printable certificate for anyone who wants to have a memento of completing the "course".

At some future point, we may do a Finishing School, Part II. So, if you have any suggestions for "classes" you'd like to take, please let me know. We could delve more in depth about one of the topics we've covered already, or we could introduce something

A big thank-you to all of the teachers who participated, as well as to all of you who have followed along with our posts. Also, thanks to Emma, who helped kick-start the idea, and her husband, who created our signature button.

I'm confused about the Finishing School for Ladies. How does that work??

Hi Sanders,

We just completed our first "Finishing School Project". The idea came because some visitors to the blog, "Charming the Birds from the Trees" (including me) were thinking it would have been fun to have studied the subjects that were/are taught in a finishing school. Each week one woman posted at least five posts on her blog about a certain subject that might have been offered in an old-fashioned finishing school curriculum. Participants visited that woman's blog for the week.

My next project is to gather up all of the posts and put them on this web site: ttp://
In a few weeks, you should be able to go there and read all of the posts.

Hope that helps.
