I enter free give-aways all the time, but I never seem to have my number picked.
Today the lovely lady over at Heather Hales Designs emailed me to let me know that I won a lovely vintage pillowcase tote bag! Yayyyyyyy! I'm so excited.
Not only are all the things she makes beautiful beyond belief, but this creation in particular has a special place in my heart. The vintage pillow cases that she has been using in her designs of late remind me so fondly of my dear grandma and her linen closet. I've been thinking of my grandma a lot lately. She just had her 90th birthday this summer. She is suffering from some dementia lately as well and I only get to see her a couple times a year, so she no longer always remembers who I am. I loved her home filled with sewing and cookies when I was a kid. She was a true product of the 50s and the quintesential homemaker.
Thanks Heather for the lovely, lovely gift and these sweet memories that are coming along with it! I'll take some pics of me with it when it comes in the mail so you can all see how great I look with it (he he he).
