This week we are so excited for all the fun to come! Yesterday was Grandparents Day, and we sure think Grandparents are wonderful! We were blessed with some really awesome Grandparents and great-Grandparents! We thought that each of us would share a little grandparent love, and then we have a way for you to join in!
To start off the week with a bang, we’re holding a skirt giveaway! We’re offering the Grandma skirt pictured above. We got this skirt from a dear grandma lady, and we’re going to share it with you! It is a White Stag size 8 women’s skirt. We’re quite sure you could come up with a really cute refashion for it! Will you attach it to the bottom of a denim mini? Will you make it into a pillow? Will you add some purple lace to the bottom and go? Will you cut it into strips and incorporate it into a quilt? Will you shorten it to a mini? We can’t wait to see what the winner refashions! Here’s how it works; Leave a comment, and tell us something about one of your grandparents. Agree to send us a photo of the (re)finished product if you’re the winner of the random drawing! That’s it! On September 21, we will draw the winner, and send the lucky person the skirt! So without further ado, here are our Grandparent memories:
My Grandma is the greatest lady in the world! If I turn out to be even 1/2 the woman she is, I’ll be blessed! I love the way she laughs so hard tears come leaking out the corner of her eyes. When I walk into her kitchen, the smell brings tears to my eyes…there is no better smell, and no matter how hard I try, I cannot replicate that smell! One year Grandma gave me some blackberry jam she’d made from the berries in her garden, and I savored each and every bite! Since this is a skirt blog, I must mention my Grandma’s sense of style! I covet her timeless, classy style. A smart lady, she was the secret behind my Grandpa’s business success. Quiet, soft, strong, and steady, my Grandma loves to feed the birds and discuss ways to outwit the squirrels. One thing I wish she would teach me is how to fold fitted sheets neatly. I’m convinced she irons them although she laughingly protests she doesn’t! One of my goals in life is to become as much of a lady as she is.
My Grandma M. is a big encouragement to me. I am thankful that she is such a loving grandmother that really likes to sew as much as I do. I love it when she helps me on sewing projects- I learn so much! One time she showed me how to make a renaissance costume! I loved it! I am also thankful that she taught my mom to sew, otherwise I wouldn’t know how!!! She has a very comfortable style, and she wears a lot of skirts! She likes denim skirts, which is something that we share in common:)
My Grandmother is so nice, as all Grandmas’ should be. She goes to Goodwill once or twice a week, and sometimes brings us the cutest things. It really was her who introduced us to Shelly, at Shelly’s Boutique. Sometime she’ll take Allegra and me to the mall as a birthday present. Sometimes, when we go to a second-hand store, we’ll see a skirt that looks like her style. We always see if she wants it before we remake it. I wonder if there is a best grandma award, I think if there was, I would give it to her.
I like my Grandma because she came to our house and she’s my mom’s Mom. She read me Mary Poppins. I like my other Grandma because she comes on Wednesday and helps us clean the house. My great-Grandma has lots of toys in her basement, a bunch and I wish we could go there more often to play with them. I like all my Grandma’s skirts!
Well, that’s our memories and Grandparent love! Be sure to enter the skirt giveaway by leaving us a comment about one of your grandparents!
