Advent Calendar Day 17 Christmas Memories

Some of the best gifts are family heirlooms


Advent Calendar Day 17 Christmas Memories... During the last years my mother was with us every year she would give us gifts of her favorite treasures as Christmas gifts .
This is one of my favorites. It is a brooch that my mother bought as a gift for my grandmother Grace about 1942.
She gave me a note in her handwriting telling me that it cost her $12.00 which was a whole weeks wages and tips. She worked at the Asia Cafe, the same cafe my father went to and introduced himself to her after seeing her picture on my grandparents mantel.
I posted about this brooch before on December 10th 2009. It is one of my most priced possessions.
