OLM'S What makes my heart skip a beat

Old Lady Morgan is having a giveaway to celebrate her whopping  187 followers and would like to know what makes our hearts skip a beat or two.If you haven't checked Marie's blog out then do because there is lots of fun to be found with plenty  of giggles thrown in the mix.Here is where you can find her :

Now what makes my heart skip a beat... why of course my family. They are my true treasures here on earth,but I am sorry to say I have no up to date pics..They are not the only thing though that gets my heart all a little fur baby Gretchen sure makes my heart dance when she greets me at the door a wiggling,crying ,,ball of energy.

This was her first Christmas ,lost several ornaments to her that year.LOL! She is my sidekick and shadow.

An old wooden dough bowl or trencher can send my heart into spins.Nothing feels quite like an old ,timeworn bowl does in your  hands.It just makes me think and wonder of all the things it held in the days of yesteryear. Here is a pic of a huge  trencher hubby bought me last year.Sweet of him wasn't it.
And of course a cute bunny can send the old heart into a tailspin too.After this little guy lost his mom ,I bottle fed him .

Painting on a gourd makes my heart smile.Here is a pic of one that I did a while back.Please excuse the mess around him.

The list could go on but I don't want to ramble to long and bore you.Last but certainly not least of all  is the friendships I have found online ! Each one of you are a  blessing that makes my heart skip a beat or two.Hugs,Jen
