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?
