A Lovely Vintage Piece

Isn't this old piece of jewelry just wonderful?  I picked it up at a flea market for next to nothing.  I didn't even realize it was a locket until I got it home.  

Just think of the wonderful stories that might have once been a part of this vintage locket.  Perhaps it was worn by a girl as her love went off to war.  Or, maybe it was presented to a new mother to put a precious picture of her young child.  It might even have been worn by a widow to keep her dear one close after they departed, a picture in one side and a lock of hair in the other.

Whatever the history of this locket, it still has a lot of life left in it to create more stories with. I just love finding special treasures like this!  I have a couple more I will share in coming days.

Have a good day and make a memory.

Oh, how pretty! It reminds me of my grandmother's dresser, filled with beautiful things.
