How to Hand Down Heirlooms (and Still Be Speaking to Your Family Later)
Posted by Diane

Ever since I can remember, I've had my eye on my mom's set of pyrex nesting bowls in graduated shades of yellow. My parents received them as a wedding present back in the day, and I think they're beautiful. I'm not sure whether my best strategy is to call dibs now, or continue hiding my lust for the bowls from my sisters in hopes they haven't noticed their existence.



Visitors to the FamilyTreeMagazine.com Forum have been sharing stories of how their families hand down such heirlooms—and they have some pretty good ideas for keeping the peace.

See their suggestions, and add your own tales: http://www.familytreemagazine.com/forum/forums/

I clicked on your link and went to the forums but couldn't find which category had the messages about heirlooms (would help if you mentioned that in your post ;-) I did a search for "heirlooms" and got a "no matches found response".

I'm sorry--I did something wrong with that link. Should be fixed now!

When I really would like something of my mother's I simply state: Mom, Some day when you no longer have use for bowls I'd love to have them. The rest is up to her.
