--50 years old--

my beautiful mother and aunt gave me a gift yesterday. they gave me my grandmothers Waterford crystal heart pendant necklace with the original silver rope chain. the piece is a little over 50 years old and quite possibly the most beautiful thing i own. it is so old that it is new again-- and it is just so completely lovely...i can't breath.my grandmother was a huge influence in my life and is still very close to my 'heart'. that makes this one of the most incredible gifts i have ever been given. thank you.
