Women's History Month: Heirloom

March is Women's History Month and as such Geneabloggers' prompt today is: Describe an heirloom you may have inherited from a female ancestor (wedding ring or other jewelry, china, clothing, etc.) If you don’t have any, then write about a specific object you remember from your mother or grandmother, or aunt (a scarf, a hat, cooking utensil, furniture, etc.)

To be honest, I would much rather have information (and photos and documents) rather than traditional heirloom items. Hence, photo albums and documents are my most treasured keepsakes. That said, I do have Baba's "good" silverware set. I do not know what time of silver it is or how good/unique/special it is and quite honestly that really does not matter. What matters is that it is a part of her and Gigi and that it is functional.
