Hang on Girls.....

...it's gonna be a wild ride!
Sometime back, I mentioned in a previous post that my sister, Marsha, was diagnosed last fall with breast cancer. She's doing fine, thanks. Awhile ago, she received information from Ellis Fischell Cancer Hospital, where she received her treatment, about a 'Decorate a Bra' Contest and silent auction. She couldn't wait to share that info with me and to let me know that WE were going to do this! LOL....."WE" meaning, she'll pay for all the supplies and I'll put it together! So a couple weeks ago we got together to go register and buy the supplies.
Well, I thought I'd share what I came up with.....

Looking thru photos of past events, I had not seen a biker bra so I decided to go with that. I added some silver studs, leather fringe, a metal H-D embellishment and I cut off the regular shoulder straps and replaced them with chains. Then, on the back at the closure.....

A metal "HOPE" embellishment. Marsha loved it! And so did everyone she showed it to! So off we went yesterday afternoon to submit our entry! There were several turned in already....We were so caught up in making the bra that we didn't even ask how they determine the winner! But it doesn't matter! It's the cause that counts!

If you would like to know more about this event, just visit http://www.ellisfischel.org/body_efcc.cfm?id=1885


I hope you are having a great week and enjoying the cooler temps!
