How to Loop through JavaScript object literal with objects as members?

How can I loop through all members in a JavaScript object including values that are objects.

For example, how could I loop through this (accessing the "your_name" and "your_message" for each)?

var validation_messages = {
"key_1": {
"your_name": "jimmy",
"your_msg": "hello world"
},
"key_2": {
"your_name": "billy",
"your_msg": "foo equals bar"
}
}

Answer
for (var key in validation_messages) {
    // skip loop if the property is from prototype
    if (!validation_messages.hasOwnProperty(key)) continue;

    var obj = validation_messages[key];
    for (var prop in obj) {
        // skip loop if the property is from prototype
        if(!obj.hasOwnProperty(prop)) continue;

        // your code
        console.log(prop + " = " + obj[prop]);
    }
}
