Found Friday #18: Bridal Brooch (…and a just for fun picture that will probably make you laugh…)

I pulled a picture from my wedding album for my last post. And then I got to thinking about something sort of random.

On my wedding day, I wore a brooch in my hair that belonged to my great grandmother. As I was flipping through pictures on Wednesday, I realized I couldn’t quite remember where I’d put it. So, a search ensued. I couldn’t get it out of my head until I found it. Nothing else mattered.

It was, of course, in the most logical but least likely place – not with my keepsakes, but with my jewelry.

It’s just a costume piece, but I love it nonetheless. And I’m glad I wore it, and carried my family with me, on such an important day.

It’s safely tucked away now.

Bonus photo! This one’s in the wedding album, too. I have no idea what’s happening or why my face looks the way it looks, but I’m pretty happy that someone captured this moment.

  1. It is lovely, and looked perfect in your hair. I have my mother’s costume jewelry pins clipped on a doll coat hanger hanging on my wall. 🙂
    The photo is amusing–perhaps you were not sure what was behind that hand.

    • Thank you! And what a clever idea. 🙂 I’d love to see a picture.

      I have no idea what I was thinking in the last photo. I feel like for a face like that, there’s gotta be a good story. I wish I could remember!

    • I agree. There’s so much more to value than just money. I’m so grateful to have amassed a collection of items that remind me of my family and my home, and that make me feel connected to the world. 🙂

      I wish I could remember what was happening in that picture! I’m sure it would probably make for a good story.
