I keep seeing participants for this party and haven't posted because I've posted about my heirlooms in the past, but I have given up resisting! ;-) I have two heirlooms. Both belonged to my greatgrandmother. The first is the secretary in my dining room.
My mom had this piece in her house for years but she didn't have room for it. When we moved to our current home, we had tons of space. Some rooms were empty! Not so much anymore with the addition of 2 more people. I recently moved it to my dining room and it holds some of my milk glass.
The second are my great-grandmother's costume jewelry collection. Again, my mom had these for years and gave me the boxes looking like this ...
It took me a couple of hours just to unravel the mess, match up earrings, sort it all, etc. but I did find some pretty things.
Check out the other heirlooms at Emma Calls Me Mama! Thanks for hosting Marie!
