" PINK SATURDAY "

This is my second Pink Saturday. I decided to show all of you my grandmother's art deco pink handkerchief with her beautiful bird pin. I can always remember her with a handkerchief in her purse. She give me this one when I was about nine years old. I told her I liked the pink circles and just like my grandmother she give it to me. She always give people her things if they told her they likes them. I didn't realizes that she did that until I got older. The pin was given to me after I got married. She loved jewelry and always had a beautiful piece on. She passed away many years ago and I miss her giving heart. I'm so happy I can share something she give me. Hope you enjoy these beautiful gifts my grandmother give me. Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a happy and safe 4th of July.

  12. Great story. Sometimes we have to become mothers ourselves to realize the sacrifices our mothers and grandmothers made. Your handkerchief and pin are wonderful keepsakes!

  15. Well, I like the fact that these are heirlooms. Just knowing that they came from someone you love and then to be entrusted with such treasures is quite overwhelming.

    Happy Pink Weekend!
