Asked at Blackhawk Museum Guild Antiques Appraisal event

What is the most valuable thing, besides your house, you have ever owned?

That depends on how you translate "valuable." I think it is my Waterford lamp that my husband and I purchased on our first trip to Europe as husband and wife. It was our first discussion about value.

A vase. My grandmother was engaged to one of the Armour brothers in Chicago. Then she met my grandfather and he swept her off her feet. When they got married, the Armour family came and presented them with a beautiful pair of vases, a unique green with designs inside. I have one and my brother has one.

My independence. Just being my own person. My husband allows me to be my own person. With a lot of my friends, their husbands are the domineering types.

My current car. My first car cost $65. It was a '39 Chevy that I bought in college. My current car is in the neighborhood of $60,000. It's a Mercedes convertible.

My college degree. It was hard-earned - I went to San Diego State University - and one thing in life that I put my heart and my soul into earning. It's of great value, maybe not monetarily, but college teaches you about being responsible. It's character-building. From the work experience to living on campus, to relying on myself.
