Exciting News!!

Joyce Lucas, founder and owner of Make Mine Pink
has been named one of Country Living's 2008 Women Entrepreneur Honorees!!

Joyce founded Make Mine Pink in 2004, from a personal need to find other like minded women who were struggling to not only get their businesses started, but to gain the recognition their businesses needed to succeed. Not only did she create Make Mine Pink as an online shopping mall~ but she created a forum for the business women to exchange ideas and build friendships.

I am very proud to be a member of Make Mine Pink and to also call Joyce my friend.
Several of us will be in attendance when Joyce receives her award.....
all dressed in PINK and busting our buttons with pride!
Watch out Chicago, here we come!!

For the past few months I have been scouring the internet for new items to offer on the Grandma G's website. I was most interested in finding items produced using vintage tablecloths,tea towels, and other linens........and I have found it!!

A lovely lady, and darn fine seamstress, LYNNE PARK, makes these wonderful bags from vintage linens.....cutters only, no usable tablecloths or other vintage linens are used!! Her product name is


Here are some facts about these wonderful bags:

**They are reusable and therefore Eco-friendly!
**They are made from reused vintage items...linens...again, Eco-friendly!
**They measure approx. 12.5" tall, 10.5" wide and a big 5.5" deep!
**Their design was inspired by the brown paper shopping bags with wide flat bottoms
we have seen and used for so many years in grocery stores!
**They are reversible!
**They can be gently laundered and line/air dried to be used again and again!
**They are very versatile......use them as your shopping bag, as a gift bag, book bag,
flea market bag......or whatever bag!!
