Fearless Females - Day 6

March 6 — 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.)

All around the house there are items that I have inherited from my Grandparents. I talked about a few of those bits in one of the recent Family History Writing Challenge posts (day 17).

I do have my Grandmother's wedding ring, a rather bent 22 carat gold plain band. When I got married my Grandmother was still alive and a few days before the service she gave me the ring and said that I should wear it as my something old. I accepted it and did as she requested. I now have it in my jewellery box.

When I got married I did the traditional, something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. I wish now that I had asked my Grandmother if she did the same and what did she use for each of those things.

  1. What a nice thing for Grandma to do for you on your wedding day. And don't we all wish we had asked our grandmothers more questions when they were still with us.
