My Grandmother passed away a few years ago. Before she did, we kept her off-season clothes in our guest room closet. I’m not really sure why I was nominated to store her clothes, but it never really bothered me, and it was nice to have a piece of her here in our house.
I also was given a box full of her jewelry to hang on to. And I still have it. There are no jewels or diamonds, primarily costume jewelry and a lot of clip-on earrings. I went through it when I first got it and chose a few pieces I liked that I thought I’d wear. Recently I’ve been feeling nostalgic and found the box to see what other treasures it held.
I found a couple of bracelets that I’ll wear, but it was this pendant that really blew me away. I can’t believe I’ve never noticed it before. I adore the butterfly and flowers, and wish I had a memory of her wearing it. I’m sure she did. I remember shadow boxes with butterflies covering their walls and Grandpa always had an amazing flower garden.
I love it, and I’m so glad I took another look through the box.
