1. A valued possession passed down in a family through succeeding generations.
2. An article of personal property included in an inherited estate.
This week's theme - Heirloom - was chosen by Judi and, at first, I didn't think I had anything that fitted with the theme until I remembered this faux pearl necklace that belonged to my Grandmother.
After my Grandmother passed away, my Mum said I could choose a piece of Granny's jewellery to remember her by so it's very sentimental to me. I keep the necklace in one of the papier-mâché boxes shown in the pic. I painted and decorated this set of boxes quite a few years ago when I was in my shabby chic decorating phase. I think they compliment the necklace quite well, don't you?
I love the weight and feel of the necklace with it's chunky faux pearls and I've worn it a few times myself over the years. It has special meaning to me and brings back fond memories.
My Granny was such a lovely and caring lady who always liked to look nice. She was quite a character and had a very broad Scottish accent that my siblings and I loved to listen to.
I miss her and I like to think that she still looks out for us from afar.
