This crystal heart brooch is a family heirloom that my Mother gave to my keeping sometime this past year. This belonged to my Great Grandmother. It was given to her by my Great Grandfather on their 50th Wedding Anniversary December 24, 1962.
It is amazing to think of them being married back in 1912. I never got to meet my Great Grandfather because he past before I was born. My Great Grandmother was a fiesty, hard working German woman and lived into her 80's. I have seen pictures of them together and they were very cute together. Being married for 50 years is so outstanding and to recieve this gift must have been very special to her. I wear this brooch often and remember the love between the two people in which it passed.
I hope you get to spend sometime today with your special love and have a very Happy Valentine's Day!!!
