My Gaga ( great grand mother ) turned 100 this month. How amazing is that! It's just unfathomable. So to help me grasp what it could mean to reach 100, I created this timeline with a few major historic events that Gaga lived through. Bertha Vaughn Brown was born Dec 24, 1910 in Greensboro Kentucky. She has lived during the times of: The sinking of the Titanic, End of WW1, Womens Liberation Movement, Stock Exchange Crash & the Great Depression.
She was around when a dozen eggs cost 12 cents, the start of WW2, the day Nuclear weaponry was dropped on Hiroshima & Nagasaki. She was there during the Civil Rights Movement, 1st man on the moon, the end of the Vietnam War, Here During 9/11 and around to see America elect it's 1st African American President.

Holiday Gift

As a holiday gift I thought it might be nice to give friends and family hand crafted bath salts. I mean, it's pretty busy time of the year, people running around shopping, work usually gets more hectic, traveling arrangements... Just made sense to share something to help folks chill. It was also an opportunity for me to sharpen up my label making and Packaging skills. If your are into bath salts & body pampering stuff I highly recommend trying making it yourself, it's crazy easy!
