UR Pricelessly Crazy!

Sometimes inspiration comes at the strangest times.
My 17-year old son and I as he’s leaving to meet his dad:

Me: Give me a kiss goodbye (I make that strange little sound when you pucker up)

A: What is that?

Me: It’s what Grandma Glynn used to do when she wanted a kiss

A: (weird look) Oooookay… (gives me kiss anyway)

Me: I loved when she did that . . .  She also told me that the safest place for your money is in your bra.

A: Not helpful to me.

Me: (as he’s walking out the door) you never know kid! You might get fat and bald and need a 'manssiere' like your dad!!!


So, with Grandma Glynn on my mind, I started to look for fabric that might make a nice UR Priceless change purse. I think she’d like my choice….






If you'd like to try your hand at making a UR Priceless change purse, 
the pattern is available through Madame Samm's Craftsy page.


Congratulations to #32 Sue for winning the Wicked blog hop giveaway--your charm pack is on the way!

  32. I had to laugh when I saw your purse. First of all when I was 15 I worked in a "dime store" - this was back in 1961. All of the older women carried their money in their bras, pulled it out to give me to pay for their popcorn and I was horrified. I was a teenager, what can I say! But last year while traveling in Europe where did I keep my money? In my bra! blessings, marlene
