Show and Tell Friday!

Pin It Now!

Yesterday I received a package in the mail from my dear mom. Inside was this beautiful and very old cameo.
My mom's sister received this cameo from a neighbor when my mom was about 14 years old.  Her sister didn't want it so she gave it t my mom.  My mom has kept it all these years and has now passed it on to me. 

Thank you mom! I love it!!!

It has a crack in it but it doesn't take away from the beauty of it...
