In an effort to document my family treasures which cannot be scanned in, I am publishing this series of pictures as part of the Treasure Chest Thursday theme at Geneabloggers. Someday in the future, I hope to shed some light on these treasures for my family who might inherit them. What were they for? Who did they come from? Why were they considered treasures? Let’s find out.
This pretty red rose brooch pin was given to me during my senior year of High School by my good friend, Deidra (Eickholt, Penny) Moitzheim. It’s about three inches tall and is gold plated.
I tried wearing it a few times but it’s too large and heavy to fit nicely on most sweaters. I’ve kept it in my jewelry box and enjoyed looking at it all these years. It’s a nice reminder of our friendship.
