Like kids collecting rocks (or my daughter who collected rubber bands when she was five), I have my own precious treasures. I keep them in my sewing room and somehow they make me happy just sitting there.
They are little items that intrigue me…
Like thimbles…none of them valuable…except to me. Especially that beautiful wooden one. My dad made it.
It’s always fun to come across a cute tape measure and, of course, I especially love the yellow ones!
Over the years I kept every wooden spool that came my way
…and clear glass buttons
…and shell buttons.
This past week I spent my days helping my parents move. They tossed out this Lazy-Susan. I watched them do it, thinking nothing of it. Later I walked by the box full of stuff and the “yellow” caught my eye.
…so I brought it home and gave it new life in my sewing room….a perfect place for some of my treasures.
Oh, I forgot to say I also have a growing pile of little scissors
… you know, just too sweet to resist.
This morning I started reading The Nine Tailors by Dorothy L. Sayers. Five pages into it and so far so good!
I’ll be linking with Judy’s “Whatcha Reading” over here.
