Ladies We Love – Barbara “Babs” Luff McCraine

Anne Says:

“I first met Barbara “Babs” McCraine in person in February 2007, but I had sort of known her for years. Barbara is the beautiful model in these two past favorite designs:

be-good.sm  bad-girls.sm.

One of the bonus treats I got when I moved back to Maine was the flowering of what had been a long distance relationship – I now get to have lunch with Babs (and our friends Sissy and Barbara) two or three times a year!

barbaraLast week, Babs told me this story of how she had been “found out” by one of her neighbors:

Barbara’s neighbor had found our product line featured in a store she visited on vacation. She bought a magnet, and when she returned home she visited our website to buy more. As she explored the site she saw a face she recognized! She had had no idea whatsoever that her lovely neighbor had been a model in her teens and early twenties.

Babs McCraine is an inspiration. At the age of 89 she is as active and sharp as anyone I know. She is a consummate gardener (you should see her yellow lady’s slippers!), an inexhaustible traveler, and a really sharp dresser. I wish I’d gotten a picture of the funky shoes Babs was wearing last week! Next time…barbara group
