This collection is dedicated to Little Granny (Mary), but we’d be remiss not to give due credit to our Big Granny (Lucille), the woman who birthed – and blessed the world with – our beloved mama, Margie.
Much like us, Lucille was born into a family of three girls. She was the middle child – the Hedy, if you will – sandwiched between Amelia, the private-schooled prodigal daughter who eloped with one of the ranch hands, and her baby sister, Emma, who was partially crippled but totally coddled. Lucille, on the other hand, was the workhorse of the family; the no-frills, nose-to-the-grindstone sister that kind of kept things running around the farm. If you know Margie, you know that the apple didn’t fall far from that tree; she may have a few more frills – she is the matriarch of a fashion family, after all – but at 82 years old, she is still hands-on and hard-working and in the office every day.
That’s why, when concepting this collection and how Lucille factored into it, the Lucille’s Chore pieces came to mind.
