There was one item, a small simple, porcelain butterfly bangle that I admired the most and would always beg to wear; this went on for many years, well into my teens. My mum explained to me one day that it was a gift from a boss back in the 70's when she had worked in London, well before I was even thought of.
Now and again I would get a glimpse of this bangle yet the love for it never waned. Then the other day out of the blue my mum came to visit and handed me a little package. I opened a tiny little box, unwrapped the tissue paper and to my surprise there was the little butterfly bracelet I so dearly love, to say I was moved is an under statement!
This is my pride and joy
My mum gave it to me as an adult so I can wear it with love and care and she has seen my affection for vintage flourish. I'm now at a time in my life where I can truly appreciate it for all its history, sentiment and wear it with great love and pride. This is now one of my most cherished items.
Thanks Mum x
