Week 8: Heirloom
Is there a special item that's been passed down in your family?
Pictured above are pieces from a set of china I received upon my grandmother Mary Bryant Harrison Horton's passing.
I love this set! It is decorated with beautiful pink carnations and gold trim. If I am having a family gathering, I try to use this set. It's a way for us to share the occasion with my sweet grandma.
Another heirloom I treasure that once stood atop the piano at grandma Mary's house is a statue of two hands holding a dove. I featured a picture of it on this blog before in this post, Sentimental Sunday: These Artifacts Are My Time Machines. In the same post, I also wrote about two cat figurines that used to belong to my grandmother Ethel Smith Murrell .
