This is the story of wee Bauble Betty,
She piled on jewels each time she got ready.
With necklaces, bows, and colored bangles stacked,
She looked just like a clown in a circus act.
Her mother scolded, “You must learn to edit!”
This piece of advice Betty chose to discredit
Until she fell on accessories so fine:
Allyson Anne scarves to wear all the time.
With patchwork-design vintage fabrics and scraps,
They add punch to dresses — even tees from the Gap.
Some boast dainty bows or flowers so pretty.
Others bearing fleece are slightly more gritty.
Each is handmade with love and one of a kind.
Look! Betty has left all her jewels behind.
