Myrle Poulson Hunter was born in 1899 in Holden, Utah. She was my great grandmother. She had an amazing style.
She loved to buy clothes and then “re-fashion” them. She had rose shaped soaps in her guest bathroom and dog’s playing cards artwork in her dining room. She had a canopy bed and she had photos of all her children and grandchildren on her wall.
When I was 11, she came to our house and taught me how to sew. I got to pick out my fabric and then make something with it. I picked a pink cotton fabric with black stripes and roses. I made a pair of shorts with it which I wore to death. From that point on, I wanted to sew.
She ran a household during the great Depression and espoused a recycle, reduce, and reuse ethic.
