You receive a gift that is bittersweet and makes you nostalgic. What is it?

Bittersweet Memories

I was gifted with an old fashioned jewellery box.

It belonged to my Grandmother, I used to go into her room when I was very little 4-5 years old, and I would lift the lid and be absolutely mezmerised every single time.

Opening the gift I was transported back in time, I cried as I opened the plush pink lid, the crushed velvet inside was exactly as I remembered it, Grandmas ruby ring was still there that came with the box! I was so overwhelmed.

The scent of lavender filled my nose, Grandma always kept lavender hankies in her jewellery box.

The music started playing and the beautiful lady dressed like Cinderella started to dance around a gentleman who was dressed in a black suit with coat tails and a top hat, he escorted her round and round never tiring, as I became dizzy with emotion watching them.

I shut the lid and sobbed
