Time for the first 2015 link up with the Style Me Bloggers. I'm really excited about continuing the series with these talented ladies, and we have some interesting topics planned this year. Stay tuned!
Today we're supposed to be sharing items from our closet: something old, something new, something borrowed, and something in a shade of blue. Except..... I've already written about my old Dale of Norway sweater, and I looked and looked and couldn't come up with a single item that was borrowed. Apparently I am very good at returning things! So bear with me for my interpretation of this topic.
Something old. This teacup and saucer belonged to my husbands' grandmother, Emma. She emigrated from Norway in the 1920's to marry a baker, which led her wealthy hotelier family to disown her. When she arrived in America, she carried few possessions, but one of them was this teacup. She passed away in the early 1960's, and my mother-in-law brought it home and had a cup of coffee in it every day. Now it's displayed at our house, and it reminds my husband of his mother and grandmother every time he looks at it.
Something new. I received this Loft sweater from my sister for Christmas and I love it. The lace is attached to the bottom of the sweater, so it's perfect with leggings, and I really like the color.
I hope you'll link up with us today, or come back in two weeks for "2015 wishlist: what are you coveting"? Be sure to check out the other Style Me Bloggers!
