Present from a Friend-- [vintage sewing box]
This cigar box, was not cardboard, but a thin wood. The past owner, had taken and put small little cardboard boxes inside the cigar box. Each held , her much needed possessions. Tiny wood spools of thread, a little pair of rusty scissors, thimbles, and paper tape measures, an occasional button. Laying on top of this was, this big spool of blue thread??? I really wonder, what this was? Possiably... something from a spinning loom? I don't know?
I walked away from this treasure, knowing I had no need for it, and I already have an overflowing sewing room. I wandered around the store, while Kenny talked with the store owner. While, I was away, Kenny went and bought the "special little sewing box" for me. With much delight, I brought it home, and it sits in my over crowded sewing room. Not only does it bring memories of yesteryear.. but of a very nice day with my thoughtful husband.
