After I posted the previous shot, several Flickr friends asked to see the little sterling silver charms my mother had collected when she was a teenager. Each one is engraved with a friend or loved one's name or initials.
Needless to say, they are precious to me!
The little framed snapshot is one of my favorite pictures of my mom. She looks so young and pretty in this picture. It was taken when she was in her mid-twenties. (I love her 1940's hairdo!) ;-)
