Memories open my heart, the good kind of memories that leave me feeling as if someone I’ve loved very much and lost is still close by, still with me, and still wanting me to have a fabulous holiday. Holidays bring back so many good memories, and I cherish each one.
When I was barely old enough to walk, I fell in love with my grandmother’s sense of style and fascination with beautiful things. When I visited her each summer, she’s the one who took me school shopping and helped me become as fashion-obsessed as she was. And since I’ve inherited her vintage Trifari pins and jewelry, I’ve felt her close each and every time I look through her collection. So much so, I made Trifari jewelry an endearing part in my Christmas on Mimosa Lane, which means I get to share some of that magic with my readers.
And this month, in honor of the beautiful lady who inspired one of my favorite stories, I’m giving away a vintage Trifari Christmas tree pin, just like the one my grandmother left me (and the one little Polly in Christmas on Mimosa Lane inherits from her mother).
And in the comments, share a memory with us that makes Christmas special for you ;o)
