For My Beautiful Grandma...












































These are images of my grandmother & some of the things that she made. There is a newspaper clipping of her working in a salon, with the title "Beauty is an Art...," one of her in Beauty School (she is on the bottom row, third from the right) & one of her in her own shop (that she had for awhile, in Illinois). There is a detail of a blanket she made, I believe in the 70's. She made several of these, twin size, to fit her bed. My grandfather passed away in 1969 & she never remarried, sometimes living with us & sometimes with my great grandfather, who survived her by a number of years. Lastly, I have some detail shots of some of the clothes that she made, all of which had great details that you rarely see now. She taught me a great deal about art & craft. I thought I'd share these with you...



Just a short & unrelated note for anyone who is a Mom who also has a business, check out Momprenuer Monday. It is a group of links of Mom businesses that is free. I'm a little late posting this today, but I hope to continue this every Monday. The rules are that you can post your link if you visit the links of the other businesses & put a link & a badge on your blog. Support Moms & visit Momprenuers! I am participating through "The Attic Girl," a fun little blog, check it out sometime! Here is the link:

Hi,

Yes, you add your business link on the linky. You could also leave your blog link if you wish. Above the links, it says "want to be a part of this blog hop" there is a link to get the code. Copy and paste that code into a blog post and then copy and paste the code for our button as well with a little introduction about the blog hop.

Thanks for participating!
