My Grandmother’s Pearls

by Kay~Kacey on 2/24/2009

I heart these pearls.  They were my grandmother’s. I’ve been known to wear them with my jeans as well as with one of my numerous little black dresses.

My grandmother lived in a small town in the bootheel of Missouri. She didn’t have a lot of fancy things in her lifetime. But she had these pearls. Now I have them. I love them. I CHERISH them. Sometimes the connection with my heritage and everyone who lived before me is overwhelming. Like when I’m wearing these pearls, or polishing my grandmother’s silver.  I miss both my grandmothers. I miss them a lot. They were such strong and steady forces in my life.

Just a little reminder to send me your links for February’s Photo of the Month Contest. The theme for February is CHERISH. Either leave me a link in this post, or use the contact button at the top of the website to send me a link to your entry. What do you cherish??

What a lovely photo and post I never knew my grandparents, but I’ve already given my granddaughter my baby bracelet. Hopefully, it will get passed down. If pearls could speak …!

What a beautiful photo Kacey. Did SuperGuy take this one?

Treasia, funny you should ask that. I took it. With the timer on my camera. Running back and forth. Trying to make sure I got in focus.

Such a lovely sentimental photo.
I miss my grandmothers every single day. They were a huge part of my childhood. I was fortunate to have both of them well into my 30’s.

(I’ll be back in April and sometime this summer – we really do need to get together! Went to Artichoke Annies – what a GREAT place!)

I also have pearls, and like you, I also cherish them; cherish them.! My home was robbed 6 years ago and I was wearing the pearls when it happened. Since that day I wear them with everything, everyday.
PS: The picture is beautiful

What a fabulous picture, Kacey!

cgreno! So glad you were wearing your pearls when the house was robbed. I’d be heartbroken if I lost mine!

Beautiful reminder about the photo contest.

Unfortunately, I didn’t really enjoy either of my grandmothers. At all.

Sad.

But true.

Beautiful photo, Kacey! I never knew either of my grandmothers, and I don’t have anything from either of them. On the other hand, I have lots of things that my mother cherished, and you can be sure that they will go to my daughter.

Thanks for the reminder about the photo contest. I completely forgot.
xoxo,
Mary
