Best Shot Monday - Treasure



We've spent the week with my mom...Mia calls her Ita. Yesterday, I put my hair up in curlers, and you know Mia wanted some, too. Ita brought out her jewelry box to organize....it turned into a show and tell of wonderful memories. My mom was delighted to clip a pair of pearl earrings on her 2 1/2 year old granddaughter.


My mom pulled out the bird pin that I'd made for her while in art school. From a thin sheet of silver, I pierced and sawed out the shapes of two birds in a tree. Here, some 18 years later, it was sitting in my daughters hand. Moments like that are mighty surreal.


Mia mostly had eyes on the treasure chest. A little gold filigree treasure chest pendant filled with pearls and crystals. When I was little, this was a piece I literally treasured. I always cherished it and it felt like time stood still when it was in my hands. My heart melted as I watched my precious daughter fall under it's spell.

Oh my, what precious memories. It's so amazing to share these things with our daughters. The bird pin you made is lovely. And while the last picture is wonderful, I love her tiny head full of rollers in the first picture even better!
