Fearless Females - Heirlooms

Back in 2010, in honor of Women’s History Month, Lisa Alzo created a list of writing prompts for each day during the month of March.  I didn’t participate in 2010, so I’m going to take the opportunity to participate this year, since Lisa was kind enough to resurrect her prompts for 2012.

Describe an heirloom you may have inherited from a female ancestor (wedding ring or other jewelry, china, clothing, etc.) If you don’t have any, then write about a specific object you remember from your mother or grandmother, or aunt (a scarf, a hat, cooking utensil, furniture, etc.)

This is my paternal grandmother’s wedding ring.  When my mother gave it to me, I used to wear it all the time.  Unfortunately, it doesn’t fit anymore.

What a beautiful ring, Julie! Such a unique design. And how special to have something of your ancestors to pass down through your family.

Nice-- a second cousin of mine owns our 3rd great-grandmother's wedding ring and a mirror that had belonged to her.
