"Up in the attic, down on my knees,
Lifetimes of boxes, timeless to me,
Letters and photographs, yellowed with years,
Some bringing laughter, some bringing tears.

Time never changes, the memories, the faces
Of loved ones, who bring to me
All that I come from and all that I live for
And all that I'm going to be.
My precious family
is more than an heirloom to me."
Amy Grant

{This mirror, brush and accessories sat on my grandmother's dressing table}

{There are few things that remind me of her as much as her brush and her mirror}

Starts with the letter "E"
For Ernest
{My dad's baby spoon, fork and napkin holder}

 Upside Down
{The silver pattern matched his parent's silver...I just love this little fork}

{This is my dad's silver rattle. He must have been a pretty strong tyke to have dented the soft silver}

I cherish these heirlooms and the wonderful memories they bring back to my heart.

Linking up with Tabitha for Sunday Citar.
