MANE, MANICURE AND MAKEUP: “I do everything with my hair myself. When I was a teenager I went to a hairdresser to get an inch taken off my hair—and she left me with only an inch of hair. I’ve been paranoid ever since. I am a worker bee. I work with power tools and I garden so I am hard on my hands. I’ve had my nails done twice in my life.” for pedicures, she relies on davi nails in kennett. For botox, she visits brandywine internal medicine and aesthetics. She wears makeup on special occasions, “drug store makeup and bare minerals blush from houppette.”

ACE ACCESSORY: “I love scarves. I have a ton of them, from hermes scarves my husband bought me to a scarf I found in the drugstore. I also have a wonderful necklace I bought at blue streak in wilmington, all different size pearls. Actually, they are cotton balls with a pearl cover on them.”

HEELS OR FLATS? “A mid-heel is nice. I wore four pairs of shoes to my daughter’s wedding, starting with high heels, then a lower heel, then an even lower heel, then flats for dancing.”
