Drew Clue:

-Did you know Carolyn Keene was the pen name of a whole set of authors who wrote the Nancy Drew stories!

A while back the wonderful Ashley over at Bramblewood Fashion, created a Nancy Drew Fashion post that was mysteriously comissioned by one of her readers. Well, I was that reader! Ashley did an amazing job (I especially love her Polyvores=)! Click the link to see the post:

Oh, I love Nancy! She's a real go getter!
