Family Heirlooms

Family heirlooms are such a delight to have and my mother-in-law left me some beautiful things....over the years I have used many of her treasures in our home and today I thought I would share a couple of them with you. I will post more of her treasures in the next couple of weeks...I have so many beautiful antique pieces to pass on to our daughters...I hope they appreciate them as much as I do.

Here in my dressing area is a collection that I display....I truly treasure all her beautiful things!

Lovely Vintage Pin...I can just see her wearing this to church on Sundays!

Vintage Pearl Evening Handbag....I have used it for weddings and nights out on the town!
I'm linking up to these FUN parties!

I love decorating with heirlooms! I hate having them packed away and forgetting about them. I have one decorating rule...If it makes me smile I use it! ;)

It's so nice to have keepsakes like this in your family, and to pass along some personal stories of the people along with their treasures.
