NYE 12/31 '22
Unexpectedly, my New Year's tradition became wearing my grandmother's wedding tiara.
Some years, my sister would steal it away, but most years, I wore it.
My grandmother was born in 1918 and I'm not sure exactly when my grandparents got married, but she was 25 when my dad was born, so 1938? 1940?
It's gotten too fragile too wear. It still has all its sequins but it wilts and one of the spires is now cracked beneath the surface. Perhaps I'll try to repair it this summer.
Happy new year.
