Fearless Females Post 6 ~ Heirlooms

March 6 — Describe an heirloom you may have inherited from a female ancestor.

I have several heirlooms. I wear my mother's wedding rings every day. They are so fragile they have been connected.

These two darling bears are made out of my mother's mink coat and my grandmother's fur coat. There was enough fur that not only do us girls have them but my brother and the grand sons also have one or two bears.

I have dishes that belonged to both grandmothers and have started to share these with grandchildren and family bibles. I posted about these Bibles before. You can read the posting at the link.

The most treasured are my mother's rings and family bibles that have been passed down . I have started to pass on some of the bibles but I have kept these two for now.

thanks for stopping by..hope to see you again soon. Grace

  1. Love the idea of the bears made out of the fur and mink coats. People don't wear these any longer so what do you do with them. My mother has my great grandmothers mink stoles. Will have to tell he about this. The rings are beautiful!
