2 of my favorite guys!!




I had a few things made for myself this winter.......first one of Deb's purses with a picture of my Grandpa lifting a heavy sack of wheat over his head. He was probably about 20 at the time of the picture. I also had one made for my Mom and her sister...they loved them!! It has a beautiful charm made by Rita attached to the purse too.

Second, Gina took my Dad's watch (that was sitting in a drawer collecting dust) and made it into a great bracelet. This picture of my Dad always makes me smile.....he was quite a character. (She also made something else but someone special is going to be getting it as a gift so I won't post picture.)

Both of these great men are up in heaven ...........I love being able to wear them around with me each day. Thanks Deb , Rita and Gina for you fabulous creations!!

The bag and bracelet are both so great! Gina did a few of my Dad and Grandparents..gave them as gifts to my sisters and Mom. You just can't get anything more personal than that!

Those are precious! Deb made some bags for me this Christmas with old photos of my mom and dad on them. There are so neat and just give such a warm feeling to look at and wear! And that Rita is a gem for doing the charms too! Love them!

Dana I am sitting here with happy tears looking at the picture of your Dad. He was one special person, with a sense of humor with no end.
I still talk to him.
Love you,
Mom
