Today I'm joining in Melody's Tuesday Treasures, and being Valentines Day, I wanted to share my locket.
My husband gave me this gold locket before the boys were born, so over 20 years ago. I have always loved lockets and he surprised me with this. Originally it had a lovely, delicate chain, but when the boys were little they pulled on my necklace quite a bit and the chain was constantly being broken. My husband then bought another chain for it, a much stronger one and each link is soldered. Since then I think I've broken it only once (or twice!).
I always wore it when the boys were little, but not as much these days. As you can see... it has some damage... that's Jack's teeth marks in it!!! When the boys were little and I was carrying them, they would quite often grab the necklace and put it in their mouths. On the back you can quite clearly see the shape of the teeth marks. It needs a bit of panel beating done to it... but I love it just the way it is!
Inside I originally had baby photos of the boys in it, but a few years later I replaced them with older photos.
I love it and it was really nice to get it out again today and wear it.
I am off to see who else is playing along today. Thanks for hosting Tuesday Treasures again Melody!
