Bra Blanket

Dear Mom,

Your youngest granddaughter—at least on my end anyway—is about as creative as I hear you were. Rita’s good at thinking out of the box. During high school they had this class where they were able to be more creative in their art. She made a full size human out of plastic utensils. The plastic man sat on a chair. Some silly kid decided it would be funny to sit on it himself and you can imagine what happened to the chair. It was in some art shows and stuff, but continued to fall apart. It now sits in plastic bags. I just loved that thing. I’ll have to search to see if I have a picture to show you.

Another piece she created was a bra blanket. Rita gathered up a bunch of bras that she bought at the dollar store. Needless to say the boys in her class loved the blanket. The teacher made her hide it every time the principal would come into the classroom. I guess he feared the principal wouldn’t approve of that much creativity.

The blanket hangs on a wall in one of our spare bedrooms. Some folks have no idea what to think of it.

I wish you could have known your grandchildren as much as they wish they could’ve known you. I know you’d all be making stuff together.


  1. A bra blanket! Now that's what I call creativity!


  2. I'm speechless.

    Okay, not really. LOL That is too cool, and tells me the kid who created it is pretty cool, too! Kudos to you for having the courage to display it with pride. That tells me something about way-cool you, too!


Thanks for commenting. I don't always comment back, but I do appreciate it.
