Welcome to week 2 of Oh You Pretty Little Things this week – the heirloom edition!
I couldn’t decide whether I should share an heirloom or whether I should come up with something which in time will become an heirloom for my children – or maybe both!
When we lost my mum we all had something of hers and I like to think that in time it will go on to my daughter. It has no value to anyone else, it wouldn’t make money in an auction, but to me it’s priceless, the story of my mum on holiday and the story of gifts from her family while they travelled…Her charm bracelet
There are so many little trinkets from so many different places, Venice, Scotland, Las Vegas and just about everywhere in between! I don’t wear it very often, because I’m terrified of loosing it, but mostly cos it’s reeeeally heavy and you could lay someone out with it if you turn round too quickly!
I’ve not added anything to it since it became mine, I don’t want to take away from it being completely hers, although there is one which I may take off as a gift for someone else. When my niece was born someone bought mum a babies rattle charm with a pink stone in it as a gift to the new Grandma. When that little Granddaughter grew up and had a baby girl of her own, my dad bought that little bundle a bracelet of her own, so maybe we should move the charm over to her treasure, and then in years to come she can tell her children all about it.
So come on – show us your heirlooms – what have you given and what will you pass on in turn? Go on over to see my chum Sonya and her treasures too grab the badge and then link up – we’ll come on over to say hi as soon as you do!!
