My grandmother's watch

I remembered on my great grandmother in my last post.I know her just through my mothers telling,she died before I was born.But I remember very good on her daughter and my mother's mother,my grandmother Elizabeta who lived with us when I was a child.I loved her very much and in the time of my early childhood she was definetelly the person "number one" for me.I keep one of her photos in my living room,those I have on my blog's sidebar.I have also few other things that belonged to her and one of those is this little golden watch that still works and that I wear sometimes.Here is also one little bit shabby photo of her as a young woman.

And today is the name-day of my older daughter Tea..

December 16

My younger daughter's name is Adela.Adela was also my great grandmother's name.They have their name-day on 16th december..

Here is one photo of my grandmother Adela in her high age.She was one educated woman,she was the book-keeper what was very unusual for women at her time.

And I have one silver earring with the pearl she wear on this photo.Unfortunatelly,I lost the other one.
