ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " H "


Wednesday will bring us to the next letter in our ABC Wednesday meme.

The letter is " H ".




The stained glass windows at Old St. Mary's in San Francisco, CA depict

HOLY scenes.




I like the old and the new in this shot.

The HIGH RISE  with the 1900 Old St. Mary's Church in front shows HOW

the vintage and new can exist together.




I am very fortunate to HAVE this wonderful HEIRLOOM from my Mother.

Once upon a time it HAD a picture of both parents.

Now all that is left are her initials on the front.

I'm glad I finally found it.




Another treasured HEIRLOOM is this pocket watch.

It was my paternal Grandpa's and my Dad made the little display stand for it.

HOPE everyone enjoys the letter " H " and will HURRY over to the link on my sidebar to see what others have posted.

What a great contrast between the old church and the high modern building!
Lovely memories and I've learned the word heirloom today (I'm still a beginner in English)

I love the Old St. Mary's in Chinatown. I never fail to stop by when I'm in the neighborhood.

Great choices for the letter H. I love heirlooms - the idea of having a physical memory of someone we love that has been passed down the ages is so quaint.
