Hi my loves! And happy Wednesday to you all.
Today I'm looking to the past and the romantic nostalgia that comes with it. I love using vintage pieces from both my family as well as Js. Whether it be jewelry, coats, hats, clutches or china, silver and gold rimmed glassware. It all takes me back and reminds me of a simpler time and of loved ones lost. And I cherish each and every piece.
My parents recently told me that they have some vintage costume jewelry and a beautiful Japanese tea set from my grandmother that they'd like to pass onto me & my sister. And I couldn't be more touched to be given the opportunity to own some more of her things. She was such a wonderful woman, I can't really describe in words how incredible she was, and she had such exquisite taste and I'm truly grateful to be given the opportunity to own any bit of her.
How about you all? Do you all have things passed on from loved ones? If so, what's your most treasured item?
Have a wonderful day, sweets! :)
