Treasure Chest Thursday - Great-grandmother's brooch, 2
The brooch great-grandmother Mary S. JENSEN JOHNSON is wearing is now in my collection. Reportedly, she was a bitter woman, having lost loved ones early in her life. The family story is that on her death bed, she expressed regret in having been disagreeable as a result of her own misfortune. I try to keep that as a reminder for my daily life. And I think of that whenever I wear her jewelry.
