My great-grandmother's fan mirror and grandmother's 1960s necklace
Necklace worn doubled
Essie: Peach Daquiri
The fan mirror was given to me last summer when we sold my great-grandmother's house. I always thought it was such a cool piece. The details on it look as if they were hand carved. It dates back to the 1940s. When I first picked it up I could not believe how heavy it was!
This orange bead and white pearl necklace belonged to my grandma. She gave it to me with my birthday gifts in October. This piece is one of my favorites because it resembles today's costume jewelry, but has the memories of my grandma. I can't wait to wear it with this seasons's bright orange pieces! This mirror and necklace are much more than unique, but sentimental to me. I feel lucky to have them.
Do you have any family heirlooms or vintage pieces that you cherish?
