Thursday

Show and Tell


Today I'm sharing a little sewing kit that belonged to my mother. I don't think it is real old, but she kept some of her thread and pincushion in it.


Notice the prices on the thread! I haven't bought thread in a while, but I'm sure it's much more than these were.

I like this little sewing box because it looks vintage, even though it isn't.


Next week I will start showing my Thanksgiving decorations. Please come back to see!

Your tin is really cute. I used to work in a fabric shop in the early 80's. Thread was already more than 20 cents then!

That is a sweet box. I like the old labels and the handles. I own a few like that and they are nice to have and display.

I'm looking forward to your Thanksgiving decor.

Katherine,

Your mother's sewing box is lovely. Yes, thread is much more expensive now. I think the last spool I bought cost somewhere around $3.00. What a difference.

Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed my visit.

Blessings,
Mary

Hi Katerine,
I wish I had something like that from my grandmother. That is so special. The tin is a real cute accent piece.

I love this! I cleaned out my mom's home recently and brought a lot of her sewing things home with me. She had some old supply boxes, not any particularly like this one, but some cool things nonetheless. I love them and am keeping them to pass on to my daughter one day. Great post!

Please feel free to visit my blog anytime you wish :).

Walmart has had some similar boxes in the past few years. I bought one for each of my granddaughers. No, thread is much more expensive now. Thank you for sharing this.
