I certainly hope you spent your Saturday doing something more fun,
than I did.
I've put off cleaning out the little room off my sewing room,
and under the stairs for entirely too long.
Today was clean it up, day.
While most of it was boring boxes of stuff that ended up in the trash,
I did stumble on my Mother in law's sewing box that I've had,
since she passed away over 10 years ago.
I was really like looking through a treasure trove, of sorts.
It's amazing what we collect, and sadly I'm no exception!
I had to laugh, when I saw that she had rolled up ribbon
and kept it nice in neat with a Christmas Card she had cut up.
She carefully marked what she was going to use things on.
I'm not sure if I'm more shocked at the sticker price of the machine needles
or the fact that she kept one with a burr on it!
Here's a blast to the past. Montgomery Wards needles for 65 cents!
I really needed needle threaders recently.
Who knew I had 3 packs of them here.
These were a quarter from Woolworth's. I loved that store,
and it's long been gone, too.
This puzzled me. A one size fits all embroidery guide.
I can't imagine if or how it works, but it was only a buck, which
was probably a lot of money in those days.
I have a jar that I keep some of the classics in.
Check out this "Advance" sewing pattern, that was 35 cents.
And how about the white fabric from Penneys...
Did you catch that price tag?
I found these not only fascinating but too funny!
Who better to have "witch" pins that myself?
Yep, if you've followed me for long, you've likely seen my witchy photo.
These are more JC Penny treasurers.
I'm not sure exactly what the price is.
Could it really be 4 cents?
I had to save the best for the last...
War time package!
Here's the"vault" to not only store, but show off these treasurers,
in my sewing room.
After today, it's getting pretty full.
Full of love and yester-years sewing supplies!
til next time...
Keep on Stitchin'
