Homemade soap

My items that I would choose to pass down are some soaps that my grandmother used to keep in her drawers. They were intended to make her drawers smell nice when she opened them. She had made them herself and even gave them their own wrapping . Everytime I think of the soaps or open my mom's drawer (where they are stored now) it makes me think of her. They are something that I would want to hold on forever to keep the memory of my grandmother very much alive. Passing them down would mean passing down my Grandmother's spirit.
