The prompt today at NaBloPoMo is about family heirlooms. Do you have one and what's it's significance?
I'm going to say no.
I do have a few things that have been handed down, but I don't know that I'd call them heirlooms. I'm not certain exactly why I wouldn't call them heirlooms, but I guess I just wouldn't. They have been handed down in a way, but not exactly something passed through generations.
I guess our families just aren't like that.
I have two sets of china. Both belonged to grandparents. One set, my grandparents, the other set The Mr.'s grandparents.
PS. They match beautifully.
We have a piano that came from a great grandparent.
A cedar chest.
An old doll.
That about covers it.
I think maybe an heirloom is something that holds a significant emotion to it.
I enjoy these things and I love the knowing of them, that they were grandma's or great grandpa's, but I have no memory of them before they were in my home and belonging to me.
Tell me about your heirlooms.
