wednesday's with nana // gifted treasures
last night i was over at my nana's having dinner with her and my mom. we were talking about jewelry and she mentioned she had some turquoise that she thought i might like to have. (i have to add that nana LOVES jewelry and she has quite an extensive collection.) she went off in search for it and returned with the pieces pictured above, which weren't the ones she was originally looking for. i had seen them before, oh yes i had! she asked if i would like them and well, you know what my reply was. what makes them even more special is the story that goes along with them.
my great grandpa was fisherman. he'd be out at sea for weeks at a time but on this particular trip he was gone longer than usual. nana said gifts from his travels were rare so when he gave her this necklace and earrings from mexico it was a real treat! and i know they hold a very special place in her heart. i'm honored to have them and the story that goes with them.
