Sorry for the delay on this post. Today, I want to write about lockets. These beauties have been around for hundreds of years and have secretly carried, ashes, etchings of people , locks of hair, and even poison! Thank goodness now-a-days they are used mostly to carry pictures of loved ones.
My daughter received this beautiful locket from her grandmother a few years ago and she only wears it on special occasions. I asked her If I could use it in my blog and she said
"Yes, but please be careful with it.". She treasures it so much.
I put it around one of my favorite angels who held it safe while I snapped the picture. ..and I could be wrong but I swear I see a hint of a smile on her face!
Here are some other lockets I found on the net that I thought you might enjoy.
