MEANINGFUL Vintage Goodness!

Every year, my mother's side of the family gets together for one huge gathering.  It's really the only time of year we all see each other unless there is a wedding or graduation.  I can remember going to this gathering my whole life! 

My grandmother and grandfather had 6 children (my mom included).  So, then, my mom and her brothers and sisters had kids and then, many of my cousins have kids and NOW even my cousins kids are having kids.  I admit, I no longer know everyone that gathers for Thanksgiving!! 

This year, my aunt Cleo, brought out some old photos and jewelry and the wedding dress that belonged to my grandmother.  It was very special.  Here is what she wore on her wedding day:



I adore these shoes!

Cleo also let me have as much of my grandma's jewelry that I wished!  How special.  I can't wait to post pics; beautiful necklaces and pins...swoon...I feel so lucky.
