This Saturday we went on our usual garage sale treasure hunt! And I found a treasure that really captured my heart. I am now the new caretaker a lovely little sewing kit. After buying it and going through it's contents, I began to realize that I had bought a very cherished item that once belonged to a woman who loved to sew!
|The first pocket had thread in it...and needles stuck in it..for a quick find.|
|This pouch had four seam rippers in it of all sizes. One was in a case.|
|...you lift the cover and you can see all the little goodies that are there. l|
|A pair of wonderful needle nose pliers that were like brand new. The spring keeps them at the ready...I've never owned a pair like this and I love them.|
|I added this photo to show you the delicate little charm hanging on the second pair of scissors accompanied by fresh water pearls. Sweet? INDEED!!|
|Look! LOOK! Leather thimbles. Now I know avid sewers are probably familiar with these but I had never seen them before...and used to sew all the time. The tops are of brass I believe...REAL leather in two sizes..|
|A....tatting shuttle? It looks as though someone was attempting to learn...or had begun to make something and put it aside. It is made of ivory. Not plastic. I won't buy anything ivory..but I will not throw it away either. It's perfectly beautiful!|
