What Makes My Heart Skip A Beat?

I'm joining Marcela's party over on her blog.  She asked us to share what makes our hearts skip a beat.  Of course, my family, who you get to see all the time on my blog & facebook.  But especially hearing my hubby do one of his favorite things... sing.  You can hear him over on our church's website.   He wrote these songs himself, too!  I also like little things that belonged to people in our family that make me think about them.  Like the box of my grandmother's earrings & buttons in the first photo.  Some of these made it into my sister & sister-in-law's Christmas gifts last year.
This box belonged to Glenn's mom.  And maybe someone before her.  It looks like it could be much older than her.  I use it for my sewing box.  Has anyone else seen anything like this?  I also like:  Birds - 
Old enamel pins -
Old ribbons, rick rack, seam binding, lace, & other trims.  I bought this suitcase full of goodies at the Shadelands antique show a few years ago.  BTW, it's coming up again June 14 & I'm planning to go.  AND I'm planning to go to the Martinez Peddler Days this weekend, too.  I guess antique shows & estate sales make my heart skip a beat, too!

Your grandmothers jewels are such treasures to have. I also have a set of my grandmother's costum jewelry and one black onyx brooch from my great grandmother that I truly cherish and I feel so special whenever I have an occasion to wear them.
