Still here....

Grandpa and Grandma Ellis engagement photo, 
see how beautiful they are.
They were married for 70 years!

Because Grandpa Ellis served his country, 
 we got to witness a 21 gun salute. 
After the funeral, the family was given the empty bullet casings.
I thought what are we going to do with a bullet shell, 
besides but it in a memory box.
Really never to be looked at again. 
So I thought of this. 
The letter "V" for his name Vear.
The fish and fish hook because he loved fishing.
I still have yet to add a deep blue crystal, his favorite color. 
I love this tribute to Grandpa. 
I might not have known him for a very long time, 
but he did make a difference in my life.
I thought it would be nice to have him look at it whenever I wear the necklace.
Look at this fabric, 
try not to drool.
Grandma Ellis, gave them to me. 
She said the next time I come to visit her, 
she will give me more. 
Yes, we are going to visit her again in July. 
I thought the red white and blue striped fabric 
totally reminded me of this dress from Prada.
And this one too. 
She is excited to see what I am going to make with them.
Any other fun ideas, you have?
