Handmade objects always have a story. They have a real character and charm over mass-produced items. My blog is featuring all the handmade items I make and I'm also going to post Free Patterns for crocheting, knitting and other crafts. I'm also going to post my favourite recipes for free! Are you interested in a certain pattern or recipe? Feel free to contact me.

I love to recycle books and records and create unique purses, clocks, IPhone docks, Ereader Tablet Covers, hollow safe books. You can find my crafting in My RETROGRANDMA Etsy Store

I also love to seek out collectible treasures and you can find them in my RetroClassics shop on Etsy

I've had a number of opportunities for my unique handmade items to be featured on many blogs. I LOVE the RETRO ERA and that's why they call me "RETROGRANDMA"! FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER: http://www.twitter.com/Retrograndma

25 More Days until Christmas!

Wow! I can't believe where the time went in 2008! Do you have your Christmas shopping done? As of this weekend I'm done!
I have alot of good memories of Christmas - and I sure miss those Christmas mornings watching the kids excitement when they saw how much and what Santa put under the tree while they were asleep. Some of my family now live too far away so we cannot be together during the festive season. It's sure not like it used to be...and that makes me :-( For the first time I will not have my mom with me at Christmas and that will be extremely :-(
But I need to think positive here (my daughter always reminds me of this) - and go on........everyone's healthy and that's what counts. Soon it will be summer and I can spend alot of time with my grandkids!
Check out: Elvis Presley - Blue Christmas Handbag that I have in my Etsy Store.

Vintage Fisher Price Toys

I'm back..........due to my mother's illness and death I've been out of touch for awhile. No words can explain my feelings inside and the emptiness and hurt in my heart. Everywhere I turn there are memories of her. I need to just remind myself that she's in no pain now and is in a better place.

Christmas is fast approaching.....................and

The Vintage Fisher Price toys makes great gifts for young children today! My grandchildren can spend hours playing with them. Check out the Play Family House I have on http://www.retroclassics.etsy.com/ plus many more Vintage Fisher Price toys.
