Family heirlooms carry a certain magic, don't they? Have you ever discovered an ancient photo hidden in the pages of a book? Or an old key at the back of an antique desk drawer? I have a portable Singer sewing machine with initials scraped into its side . . . I know whose they are, but what if I didn't? What a great mystery!
Do you have any momentos from past generations?
Homework: Search the house to see if you have any family heirlooms, and then let your imagination go wild with speculation. If you can't find any, search for "family heirlooms" on Google images for some amazing pictures!
