When I was growing up my aunt would pay me $2 every Saturday to roll up her hair in curlers, it was a fun time playing like I worked in a salon :)

Good day! I congratulate your aunt a happy birthday! I wish her all the best! I also have an aunt talking about it can be infinitely long and hard))) For me, it has always been expensive, loved one! When I was little, she tried to open mnee world: we have been visiting different cities, museums, theaters ... It is a very warm, kind and always willing to help ... She became a second mother to my little daughter, it's time to visit museums, and she became already with it))) We live in a society where a lot of prejudice ... people were cruel to each other ... Have a baby at forty years in our country is something bad ... That is why, I can safely say that I am proud of my aunt: she was not afraid of convictions and preparing to give birth to first child at such a not young age ... not very soon I will have a cousin sister! What else can I say? I believe that God rewards they deserve, and looking at how wonderful life is made up my dear Aunt Nina I am convinced of this over and over again! Marina(

Beth said...

Aunt Betty is my favorite aunt. (Shhh...don't tell the others.) She is a feisty old bird, as she would tell you herself. The last time we had lunch together she regaled me with stories about being 18 at the beginning of WWII and how she danced with all the soldiers before they went off to war. Love that aunt.

Many thanks to your Aunt Frances for her hard work and generosity.

This is a hard one for me. I actually just realized that I don't have any direct blood Aunts. My Mom's an only child, and my dad had 3 brothers. My mom's cousin is the closest woman, who I would happily adopt as my Aunt though. My Grandmother was her Aunt which is just sweet in itself. She is so outgoing and fun to be around. I just wish we lived closer together so I could be in her glowing presence!

Thank you for the giveaway. You are so blessed to have a wonderful aunt to help sew. When I was a child I had a great aunt Lucile. We shared the same birthdate and she always gave me a birthday present. She had diabetes and she finally succumbed to it. Most of the relatives lived far away and I really did not get to know them real well. Betty from Idaho. hawkibeaver(at)hotmail(dot)com Love the bags and use them a lot. thanks

I have lots of aunts, my mom has 6 brothers (all married) but my favorite is probably my aunt Carey, my mom's only sister. Sometimes my mom even calls me Carey and I have to remind her that I'm her daughter and not her sister!
