Gifts From Grandma

Sunday, November 9, 2014


I asked Ryan what I should title this post and he instantly said "Gifts From Grandma"  He went on to tell me of a pair of turquoise polyester pants he got from his grandma at the age of 12! lol!  His mom suggested trying to dye them and he said, "Just throw them away!"  While I didn't get an ugly Christmas sweater from my grandma, I do remember getting a unicorn T-shirt when I was sixteen because I liked unicorns when I was....7!

This is another one of those recent sets I knew I had to have!  This card is going to a friend of mine who won and ugly sweater at a Christmas party white elephant gift exchange.  I have a picture of him in it, but I'll spare him the embarrassment of sharing that here.

Do you have a memorable gift from grandma?
 Have a great day!

  2. My mother-in-law bought all four boys neon great sweaters one year...they wore them...awful! Your card is so fun...awesome coloring!

  3. Not from my grandmother...
    but my mom actually gave me a vest not that many years ago and I couldn't keep it in and though I know it was so rude I said "WHY would you give me something like this?!!!"
