La Maison de McRae

11 December 2010
Is my new blog named after my Great-great grandmother Louise McCray (McRae). Being the scholar that I am, I want to give you a little history on the name McRae. My blog title implies that it is the house of a king. Rey is the old Spanish word for King. Any form of the word--Rey, Rae, McRae, McCray, McRey, Reyes, Roy, Rei, Rè, Ray etc-- signifies that that particular family was nobility. Of course my forebear inherited the name from her slave owner but I digress. I decided to create this blog so that I would not bore my followers here with my love for all things fashion, including home decor, fashion, make-up and wedding inspirations.

Eventually, I am planning to open an online store with some of my creations once I am settled in here. I am planning to sign up for TEFL so that I can begin working in January to refill my rapidly depleting coffers and coming up with other ways to use my talents to stay afloat. I think those who survive during tough times such as these are those who are very adept and inventive--Renaissance Souls, if you will. I've decided to put my dormant skills to use and make a living for myself. Of course this will not be until around March of next year but it is in the making and I will keep you posted. Until then take a look at some of my past creations--things I made before becoming adept with a sewing machine-- and if you are interested get ye over to my new blog
