Something Special...

Friday, April 9, 2010

A few years ago, my lovely Nana, Maisie, gave me this gorgeous rose gold locket. She has given me a lot of special things over the years and I think it's because she knows that I truly appreciate them. I've kept it tucked away because it felt a little too special to wear it out, but now I've decided it deserves the occasional outing when something fancy and sentimental is called for.

The little story that is behind the locket is cute too (and gets told to me each time she sees me wearing it, which is sweet too) the photo's inside are of my Nana and Poppa when before they were married, I think that she was about 17 and he was 19 so they would have been taken in the late 1930's or early 1940's. The locket itself was a gift from a young man that my Nana had been "courting" before meeting my Poppa, Gordon. Apparently he was always buying her romantic gifts and keep sakes, but she wasn't interested and as soon as she met my Poppa he was a distant memory.


Anyway, I love it and just thought that I would share it with you all.

it's a beautiful locket, the man trying to court her must have been very flash.

I love wearing jewellery with a history. So lovely that it reflects your own family's story. Plus it is gorgeous to boot!
