the mother lode of old notions
My great-aunt recently downsized from house to apartment. Among the things that had to go were her old stash of notions. So Mom brought them up to me last weekend and I am so excited about this stuff.
That awesome tin is chock full of bias tape, hem facing, elastic, and goodness knows what else. Also more needles than I could ever in my life use up. I absolutely love the old packaging.
Goose embroidery scissors. I mean, really. Actually, I don't think it is a goose. Crane, maybe?
Hankies. I love the embroidered one. My great-aunt was a great traveler, and Mom tells me these probably came from Mexico. And that nifty travel sewing kit. Now I need one of those train cases to go with it. And a Grace Kelly hairdo. Then, I'll be all set, dahling.
