Soft Sculptured Grandma Vacuum Cleaner Cover

It all began with a song… Butterfly Mornings & Wildflower Afternoons… One night, in 1980, my husband and I were up late watching a movie called “The Ballad of Cable Hogue”. It was a romantic western starring Jason Robards and Stella Stevens. In one of the scenes, Stella sang a song called “Butterfly Mornings and Wildflower Afternoons”. We were both enthralled with the movie, that song and those words. The next day, Glen did a wood carving using those words as flowers and a butterfly and it hung on our porch for the next couple of years. At the end of 1983, I was fascinated with the art of soft sculpture thanks to the Cabbage Patch boom. I took a class, made about 25 of those dolls and then experimented with the method using nylon stockings. Before I knew what hit me, the dolls were selling and my new creation named Grandma Broom also took off. Without realizing it, I was now in business and needed a name. The words of this beautiful song described the life I felt we already had and the business success we wanted. An artist friend suggested that I copyright and trademark Grandma Broom. Fortunately, I took her advice as a large manufacturing company I had approached about licensing the right to make her decided to do so without benefit of a contract.. We were able to issue a “cease and desist” order through the same attorney. Since 1983, my husband, Glen, and I have enjoyed creating many items and selling them at countless craft shows, as visiting craftsmen at Dollywood, through sales reps and thanks to the internet and Country Sampler Magazine, our dream is finally here – making our living doing what we love. Thanks to the support of our friends and family, the many customers we have met and, most importantly, Divine Order from Above, our life continues to be filled with Butterfly Mornings and Wildflower Afternoons

This is  an Original Grandma Broom Vacuum Cleaner Cover.
Frequently featured in Country Sampler Magazine.

Grandma can also sit in a rocker, be a passenger in your carpool lane or cover any size vacuum cleaner.

She loves to be a greeter! You may have seen one of her sisters greeting patrons in a restaurant and customers entering a gift shop. This one would be happy to “man” her post on your front porch or in the foyer.
She is 4′ 3″ tall.  Each Grandma is handmade by me, the creator of the Original Grandma Broom  This is just a small sampling of choices.  Each grandma is made at the time of order. Together, we can design your perfect grandma to match your decor!

If you know of someone who would delight in receiving her as a special gift, I would be happy to send directly to the recipient with a gift card enclosed per your instructions.

Perhaps, the “Shhh…I’m hiding from my grandchildren!” wooden heart does not fit in her new soon-to-be home.  A different heart can be created just for them.  Some of the most requested are “I kiss better than I cook!”, “Grandma’s Busy…Take a Cookie!”, “Welcome Friends”, “This is no ordinary housewife you are dealing with!”, “I’m not fat, I’m fluffy!”, “Women who behave seldom make history.”. As you can see, Grandma’s attitude is “right out there”!  I am sure you or your recipient have ideas of your own so just let them flow and the appropriate heart will be pinned to her apron.  If you are not sure, just let me surprise you!
