I personally hand sewed all the sequins and appliqués, for competitions in beauty pageants. When I saw it I nearly fell over. No one in my family knows how it got an hour’s drive away, after 24 years. Pretty proud though, my yee haw creation was marked at $80.


My Halloween Costume From Last Year

"To my surprise this piece of tape was on the bottom. It reads 'From Aunt Mandy on our 25th wedding anniversary Dec 1961', 'Cup given to Grandma Lange's mother on her 25th ann.'Soooo....I have a Great Aunt Mandy and my Grandma was a Lange. With a bit of research we determined that this cup was given to MY great great grandmother approx in 1868!!!"

I Found A Gift I Made For Someone In A Thrift Store

It’s a big, squishy, crocheted blanket made with bernat blanket yarn. I made it in 2017 for a dear older friend that I knew from our coordinated 3x a week outpatient hospital infusions. I visited her when she was inpatient in hospital and gave her the blanket. She was so touched! She wasn’t getting a lot of visitors and I really felt for her. She passed christmas day, 2017. I’m not mad, just a bit sad thinking about it sitting there. It was stained and looked pretty well-loved... I’d like to think it was a comfort in her last days

#24 that cat is Chessie, the 'mascot'/logo of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad, and later the Chessie System railroad. Very cool! A lot of train geeks would kill for that.
