I really appreciate all the sweetness - my grandmother passed away last month so life has been a little crazy for me. I've been spending more time there going through things and cleaning though, so it's been nice. She really was somethin' though. A little spitfire who didn't throw anything away. I mean that too - there used to be paths around the house to be able to get around the stuff.

april: She was 95 and still worked in that beauty shop! Not as frequently of course, but her last perm was two months ago!

I was wondering if your grandmother has anything for sale? What about a wonder woman style belt that is all natural tones???

Super Kawaii Mama said...

For a minute I thought you were in the most stunning vintage store I'd ever seen, but I was amazed to hear it was your grandmothers! She must have been quite a woman and I am sorry to hear of her passing. If any of us can help you find loving homes for your grandmothers possessions, just let us know if you are listing. Thank you for a glimpse into her magical world.
