Florence Violet Hansen Larsen

For professional reasons, I need to post some material I've written online. But what to call my blog? When Marieke, Sarah, and I (and our cousins) were little, we’d play at Grandma and Grandpa's house and often generate a massive mess: jumping back and forth between the beds in the guest room until one of the box springs collapsed or playing dress-up in Gram's sewing room which involved unfolding neat stacks of fabric and winding several of them at a time around our bodies. (I didn't realize until watching Project Runway that we were draping.) Gram, understandably, would react with total exasperation: oh gads, girls!

Here's to messes, exasperation, and Florence Violet Hansen Larsen.
