My Dad used to speak of a woman's legs as 'gams'. Now I tried to find that in the dictionary but the closest I came was gammer, which is a rustic word for an old woman and gammon whose first meaning is a bottom piece of flitch of bacon including hind leg (gambe leg).
I am ready to send my 2 chairs and foot stool to the upholsterer. These are indeed rustic ladies. One chair has painted woodwork. I am using my new chalk paint and waxes to pretty up the woodwork. I'm just trying a couple of colours and experimenting with the light and dark wax.
How is that for a beautiful gam?
