Grandma Dori

This is Michael's grandmother Doris, isn't she just the cutest thing ever? I hope that when I am her age, I can be as happy, sweet, loving and as cute as her. In this pictures she is crocheting Walmart bags together to make a bag, so resourceful as well!

For instructions on how to make this great bag, go to my backyard farming blog.

How in the world do you take a Walmart bag and crochet it? That is totally awesome! Cute picture btw!

I love how you got a picture of her crocheting. (sp??) Like you could get one with out it though. She was so fun when we were canning. David asked her, "Grandma, what are you going to do if this doesn't work?" and she said, "Well, I'd kill myself!" hahah we all could not stop laughing

I am just about to start the Poisonwood Bible. What do you think so far?

I have heard of the crochet wal-mat bag idea, but never made one myself.

Glad to get to hang out with you this morning!!

Thanks again for including me!

We're making those in enrichment!! The cutest one I saw was from the pink bags that our local newspapers come in. It made the sweetest little pink purse:)

I think the barnes and noble bags would make a great recycled tote (but you'd have to actually buy a box of them to accumulate enough to make one - which would be self defeating!!)

Mike's grandma IS super cute!!

What a great idea. Though I don't crochet, so it's a little TOO resourceful for me!

What do you think about the "grocery smarts"? I'm hesitant because I'm frugal any way, and don't want the hassle you've had with the papers!
