Last fall, soon after Scott and I got married, my dad’s cousin got in touch to tell me that she had something for me. It was a necklace that my grandma Bunny wore at her wedding, and it’s been passed along to the oldest female in each generation as they’ve gotten married. It arrived today, still packed in the envelope that Jolie received it in back in 1973.
That is a lovely, lovely tradition. I even love the water-marked card!
I was pretty delighted by the notecard too, it made it feel that much more special.
Aww, that’s special. 🙂
What a lovely surprise!
I’m really enjoying your 365 project, btw. Contemplating it for myself. 🙂
Brandice, I’m so glad you’re liking the project. It’s been even more fun and satisfying that I thought it would be. I’d love to see something similar from you!
I love all of it – the tradition, the packaging, the necklace!
What a wonderful gift! I am very touched to see
Bunny’s necklace, for the connections with her, the
connections with past generations, and the
connections with you. It is a lovely piece, very
delicate and understated. I am not into jewelry, but
this beautiful item is more than decoration – for
what it represents. I am glad the tradition has
become part of your life.
