Hello...

...February
2.2.17


Oh my, February has big shoes to fill! January was chalked full of goodness. Some I've shared publicly, some I'll be sharing soon, and one event I've had to let go quietly. Sometimes you just have to let your heart heal in private. What I will share about this certain event is I flew to Florida last Thursday to sign escrow papers on my parents home. It belongs to a new family now and I hope they will make many happy memories...enough to fill a lifetime.
I flew home Saturday.
I'm coming to terms that my mom was a very private person. Certain things more than others definitely had special meaning to her. This tea cup and saucer is part of a set that she displayed in her kitchen long after I'd grown up and moved away. Surely some pieces would not have survived packing up a household every couple of years with the Navy. My best guess is that the set belonged to my dad's grandmother. I'm hoping a few family members can help with this.



Dainty. Fragile. Beautiful.
Mom


Do you have a treasured heirloom passed down to you? Please share,

Happy (keepsake) snapping

  7. I have a tea cup from my grandma and I also have her wedding band. But I think my favorite things are the old photographs that show my grandma and grandpa when they were much younger than I ever knew them. They looked like they were having a lot of fun. :)
