My Christmas Gift to Lindy:

A gold antique heart shaped locket from England circa 1890. It is hand engraved and still contains the original photograph of an English Sailor. It has a swallow engraved on it, which is the theme of Ashtyn’s nursery. This locket was most likely worn by the wife or mother of a sailor to comfort her when she was away from him.

I intend to place it on a chain and insert 2 photographs of Ashtyn over the original photographs.

It’s crazy to think that over 100 years ago someone wore this locket which housed a picture of their loved one and now Lindy will do the same.

P.S. She loves it! She’s always been a sucker for sentiment :)
