Made With Love. Fabric yo-yos, handcarved rolling pin. 2019
I inherited my Aunt Stella Lear-Lasangue's rolling pin. The pin is hand carved from one, solid piece of wood. I remember going to Aunt Stella's and Uncle Clarence's home in Donaldsonville, Louisiana. They lived right on the Mississippi River. We wore our Sunday-best to visit with them. We would go to Sunday mass then have lunch. After lunch we would climb the river's levee to see the Mississippi.
