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.
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.ReplyDelete
