Hi from Mina

You guys already know how much I love Mina. 
She's the sweetest 96 year old lady I've ever met. 
Lately she hasn't been feeling too well, but it hasn't stopped her 
from coming out at 3pm to see the parade of kids 
get off the school bus.


Here's a pouch she made to hold a little mad money for my varmints. 
I cherish the care she takes in everything does.
If she knew what the internet was, she'd scold me for showing some cane in the above pic.

How absolutely wonderful! The pouch is classic, the thought of her folding, stapling, and writing her note is too precious.

How sweet it is.....
for some reason and i am not sure what exactly but as i was looking at thi spost it reminded me of the "gardenspell" you gave me...perhaps in mind that is your neighborhood!

Yes Nadia... she seems like the old aunt who always has things in her purse that people don't know they will need soon ;-)

Oh, Mina's back! I just love her. I hope she's feeling better (and LOL about the cane...I don't even know her and can tell you are right-on with that observation. :-)

She seems wonderful--and seems a lot like my mother who always hides a 10 or a 20 in my bag whenever I come for some "mad money" or "train fare"...

When I was little my Mina was named Mrs. Gnat. She spoiled me rotten, I loved that woman!!
