Day 91…

Silver Set

 Grandparents Silver

Grandparents Silver

This post is not about things worn, it is about things passed down.  For those people that have been reading the blog, you know that I think a lot about what I should do with the things that I have inherited.  I just returned from my brothers wedding in London, and brought two gifts with me.  The first was a pair of my great grandmothers pearl earrings for my brothers bride.  I think that she loved them (thank you to all my friends and family for the wonderful feedback!) And I was so touched that she chose to wear them on the wedding day.  The other gift was for them both.  I was fortunate enough to inherit two sets of silver, one was my grandparents, the other, my great grandparents. My brother was incredibly close with my grandfather, and the set from my grandparents was engraved with his families initials.  I did not even have to think twice about giving them this set, I am totally sure it is what my mother would have done.  I hope that one day they will pass it on to the next generation.
