Today, my grandma comes to me at work and tells me that she has something for me from her sister (my Great-Aunt Linda). Apparantly they had recently spoke about my new obsession & search for vintage suitcases. I am particularly fond of family heirlooms. I much prefer to have things handed down to me...family members' possessions that have a story to tell...possessions that have another life to live (through me/us)!
The suitcase on the bottom belonged to my father's mother's father's mother. My great-great grandmother. Wow.
The bluish suitcase on the top is my Great Aunt Linda's. Her parents gave it to her as a high school graduation gift.
+ an engagement picture of us, a strand of broken fake pearls, a mirror project I've been working on for about a month, a set of skeleton keys from our wedding decor, a skeleton key burlap sack I bought from Etsy, a lamp from my old apt., and a cross-stitch of a roses that my father's father's mother made. :D
What a story, huh? Tell me about your family heirlooms!
