Things I'm loving...

Since I missed out on writing a Things I'm Loving post last week I had planned on covering this week and last, but then noticed all the photos I wanted to share hadn't uploaded!
As it's late I'll keep it super short instead!
This week we attended a lovely wedding which gave me my first chance to wear the snuggly purple shawl that I crocheted recently and shared on a Make it Monday post.
But even more lovely than my shawl was the rare chance to wear one of my most precious pieces of jewellery. I have two special pearl necklaces. The first is a single string of pearls given to me by husband as a wedding present. The second are also pearls, this time three strands so they are a bit fancier and I don't get to wear them so often. They were also a wedding present, but this time from my Shen (grandad) to my Granny when they married in 1953. My grandparents both passed away within 10 months of each other and my dad gave the pearls to me.



You can't really see the pearls in the photo but here are my grandparents on their wedding day.
