IFB Project: A Family Treasure

IFB has a fun new project I'm participating in, where every week they task you to write about something! This week they want members to highlight a prized possession given to you by a family member. I've been lucky enough to receive many vintage pieces over the past few years, so it was really tough for me to settle on one but I finally went with my grandmother's Crusader's Cross
Also known as a Jerusalem Cross, I'm not sure how old mine actually is, but I know it was my grandmother's back in the 1940s - I'm pretty sure it qualifies as an antique at this point! I love its gothic vibe, which lends a darkly romantic feel to any outfit.

My grandmother passed away when I was pretty young, but I still remember the day she gave this to me. Of all the memories I have of her, this is the strongest, and I have this pendant to thank for that!
