Here are a few ideas for creating memories for her great-grandchildren:
- We brought back a set of china, which wasn't to anyone else's taste. Each year, we'll serve Elise's birthday dinner on her namesake's china. Her great-grandmother was an incredible hostess.
- I plan to copy the pale blue "E" from her great-grandmother's handkerchief as the decoration on her first birthday cake. Won't that be pretty?
- I brought back all the unwanted costume jewelry, scarves, makeup mirrors and brushes. I want to make a Great-Grandmother's Dress Up Box, covered in fabric, with one of her sparkly pins on top. Perhaps I can mount a photo of her inside the lid, as one of my readers suggested doing with a hinged jewelry box-turned-frame.
- Andrew's first real jewelry purchase was a sterling silver angel pin for his G.G. I attached it to a satin ribbon for our Christmas tree.
