I just remembered a fantastic grandma related story that happened this summer. I just have to take a moment to share it with you, but first I want to introduce you to two great blogs. Why? Because on Wednesday they both talked about me!
Blog No. 1 --- Megan from Studio M.M.E Blog was generous enough to do a feature of my blog on her blog. Blog buddies! She interviewed me and did a great write up. Show her some love by stopping by her blog. She is also an amazing artist!
Blog No. 2 --- Ana from Toil & Trouble has been busy writing her thesis for her studies in architecture. While she was away she asked me to write a guest blog post about a certain piece of architecture and relate it to an outfit I had worn. Fun!
Okay, onto that story...
I have an awesome grandma. She's small and cute and funny and nice. Everything a grandma should be. Her name is Gloria Flowers, but we call her Nana, which are both awesome grandma names. This summer, while I was living at home, I was showing her my collection of African themed art that is being sold to help aid the costs of my sister adopting a child from Ethiopia. While looking them over she pointed at this painting:
And said, with all sincerity, "Is this one for me?" I looked at her, slightly confused, and said, "Um...sure...why do you ask?" She looked at me and simply explained that it says her name. Well, her name to me anyway. Do you see it? If not, look at this one:
She honest to goodness thought I had spelled out the word NANA. No thought at all that they were supposed to be African themed or that they might be zebra stripes. I kind of wish I did mean to spell it out. Maybe there will be a real NANA painting in the future!
