What makes your heart flutter?

One of the greatest joys of owning two antique and gift stores is the treasure hunt ! When pursuing the hunt you never know how things are going to go. I find myself thinking back to when I was a little girl fishing with my dad. One thing that has always been the same since I was born - I love to talk-love to communicate. My dad would often have to say--shhhhh Stacey-be quiet and patient and the catch will come to you. Sometimes we caught allot and sometimes we caught few but we almost ALWAYS caught something. Treasure hunting is so the same. The curiousity always builds such excitement within me-will I find lots or will I find few??? Oh my gosh has this last week and a half been THE BIG CATCH! It has been a blast ! From a couple of great estate sales to an auction that simply left me squealing I have so remembered how fun it was to be that little girl that came home with a stringer full of a big catch...I just love my life-my dad would be proud even though I still can't be quiet ! :>)
The cream of this current crop is a gorgeous set of French Empire bedroom furniture ! (even though I must admit my secret-the old fish stringer loaded with old rusty keys made my heart flutter the very most )
So do share...what are your favorite finds of late-what makes your heart flutter?
Come out to the Hen House and Roost and check out the recent finds-you will not be disappointed !
