You’re dealing with a family-heritage addict here; anything that is connected in some form or other to the remotest of great-great ancestors is worth getting (incredibly) excited about. So just imagine my joy when I found out that my grandmother had decided she no longer wanted her lambskin coat. That’s essentially a family heirloom and cute-as-anything garment all wrapped into one...and as the only girl in the family, it landed straight in my lap. I can only thank my lucky stars.
