Imagine forgetting where you parked your car.
Imagine not recognizing your own children.
Imagine losing your most precious memories.
The effects of Alzheimer’s are devastating to the person who has the disease—and to everyone who loves that person and is trying to help them hold the pieces of their lives together.
Alzheimer’s disease affects approximately 5 million people in the U.S. The research being conducted to better understand and manage it is critical.
On Saturday, September 27, 2008, I will be walking in support of a wonderful woman who is close to my heart, Jean Kiernan, at the Alzheimer's Association Memory Walk. She was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's.
Please join us or feel free to donate to the cause.

Now onto Mean Jean
Mean Jean really isn't so mean, she is just the best lady in the world. She is far from mean, but it all gives us a giggle to call her that plus she loves the name(it's based off of a book). Jean is one of those people that if you have met her she has left you feeling like you are the most important person in the world. She just has this gift of making you feel at ease. Words cannot describe how fabulous she really is, she just has the most golden caring heart!
Mean Jean is OH's mom, and even though she isn't my mother in law, I still love her like one. She is always so supportive of any and all of my artistic crazy endeavors, as well as a feisty thrift shopper like the rest of us. She adores a good deal! She is simply Jean who looks out for everyone! Well now it is my time to look out for Jean, to thank her for all of her fabulous qualities that make her unique.
Just imagine a world without Alzheimer's, doesn't that just sound so beautiful.
Also 20% of all sales from today through friday, from both of my etsy stores, Vintage Recreations & Vintage Nouveau Designs will be donated to the Memory Walk so if you have been thinking about purchasing anything now would be great time, you get something fabulous and you help a fabulous cause.
