My great grandmother’s locket


It’s the last day of November, and the last day of my resolution to wear something meaningful every day. I loved doing this...don’t think I will stop!

Today I feel honored to wear my great grandmother Lena’s locket. Here she is wearing it c.1882-85. She was born in 1868. 



I’ve worn this locket—passed down from Lena to my grandmother to my mother to me—many times. It feels like I’m holding hands with each of these generations of wonderful women.

How luck you are to have it! It's so lovely and how wonderful to have a photo of her wearing it! I have many of my grandma's things but none really of my great grandmother's.
