MckLinky Monday - Treasures

Today on the RHOK Mrs. Albright is sharing some of her treasures and asks "What's something you own that has great value to you? And why is it important?"

There are so many things -of course there are some things that are priceless -Pictures of my kids;family -mementos from my hubby,kids, family -etc.

And speaking of family mementos/ heirlooms -it was about this time last year that my paternal Gma passed away- I have a few things from her house -Like this:This 1 picture I would look at often in her house -it's now hanging in my bedroom -I believe it's a Harrison Fisher print -which I also got a Harrison Fisher book -as shown in the picture- here's a little information about Harrison Fisher. I know it's an antique book -not sure if it's really worth much in "real life' money as most of the pages are not connected into the book now. I do love the book -I also love how my gma had other papers/pictures in the book -She was always 1 to be crafty and make things look expensive for not much money -I can only imagine the "projects" she had in mind with all the papers.

Also since it is almost St. Patrick's day -I must add some other items -my

St. Patrick's day jewelry:

I have 2 -4 leaf clover necklaces -1 that's a real 4 leaf clover, the other I now know-needs a stone put back on. I have a bracelet with 4 leaf clovers and a real Irish pence -(each side shown in the different pics-I kinda collect coins BTW) And then I have 2 rings -1 that's an Irish Claddagh/ wedding ring - BTW-it was only now that I looked up info. about it that I realized the meaning of how you wear it -guess I better make sure I wear it right next time ;) And another ring with my birthstone -Peridot -I think the green color works great for St. Pat's! I bought most of these for myself out of catalogs -my other gma did give me the birthstone ring though. I just love 4 leaf clovers, celebrating St. Patrick's day (must be the irish coming out in me), and of course my birthstone :)

These are just a few of my "treasures" -How about you? Be sure to join in the MckLinky Monday and share some of yours!

LOVE your treasures. And, seeing that picture that belonged to your grandmother made me think of a set of pictures hanging in my hallway that were from my great-grandmother's house. They are 100 years old now. I wish I would have taken a picture of them now as well. I guess I'll have to share them on another day.

I love your 4 leaf clover jewelry. I don't think I own any "green" stones. BUT, I'd love to own a green emerald ring. Ha!!

Thanks so much for linking up with the housewives today! Have a wonderful week.
