nadnuk:  Love that you remembered the sixpence!  Do you know where your MIL found it?  I’ve been searching online but am not sure what a “reasonable” price is.

My items are….

Old:  Pearl Necklace that my godfather started for me at my Christening – he added on two pearls every year until I was 18.  Also, a hanky that was part of my Christening bonnet.

New:  My Dress

Borrowed:  Maternal Grandmother’s diamond tennis bracelet

Blue:  Shoes!!
