Grandma's Pearls

Hi everyone, Its that time again White Wednesday, I love them. This White Wednesday I wanted to do something different and not show a piece of furniture or anything else like that. I wanted to show you the pearls I bought for my grandmother from the show this past weekend. My grandmother always wanted a set of pearls for as long as I can remember. My grandfather didn't make that much money working as a foreman, and running our small part time farm. Plus us kids and grandkids always needing something. So she put her desires to have a pearl necklace on hold. She never complained and never resented it. We still cooked and cleaned together. We did art projects and sewed, she never once let on. She remained happy, and I one day asked if there was anything she wanted, and she said I have everything I want and need, if God thinks I need more he will give it to me. She never let on about a special pearl necklace just for herself. My grandfather just recently passed, I decided to continue on and finish what he would have wanted to do himself. I hope she loves them.....
Every grandmother needs a set of pearls. This is their medal, not for some great battle, but because of all the little battles in life.

See everyone next time......

  7. That is so incredibly sweet of you! I have always been so close to my grandmother as well, since the day I was born. She has dementia now, but even sometimes when I visit her and she doesn't remember me, I always feel like just holding her hand and sitting with her is like a great big 'Grammy' hug. She is the best.
    I know your grandmother will be so touched by your thought and gift!
    Thanks for sharing! :)
