I'm not a huge collector of any one thing, I have bits and pieces of things I like and I'm happy with that but lately I've been drawn to vintage sewing boxes...or I should say vintage sewing stuff.  I spend hours online looking through ebay, etsy, google images, you name it I'm out there searching the world for vintage sewing stuff.  Here are a few that I've found along the way...and I mean a least for now I'm only collecting images, just hope I don't need to add an external hard-drive to save them all...

Thread and buttons....I love old spools of thread...and buttons...I could see jars and jars of buttons in my sewing studio...answer this...can one have too many buttons?  I think not...
until next time...

  1. I love the buttons and I want more buttons I have lots of them!!!!

  2. Oh so addictive!! I needed an extra bookcase to accommodate my vintage sewing items...don't you wonder what stories they could tell??

  3. I have an old sewing box of my MIL's Moms. It was handmade and quite large, the fun part is all the neat vintage goodies it holds!

  4. I've been collecting pictures and papers and bits of old 'stuff' to put into an altered book about sewing and textiles for ages! Great minds and all that.

  5. Love old buttons. I have my Grandmother's button tin and everytime I look through those buttons, I remember a bit of my childhood. I bought a sewing cabinet at a second hand store simply because the guy told me it came with the stuff that was in the drawers. There were old spools of thread, a velvet pincushion and of course some buttons :-) Oh, I did refinish the cabinet and it now hold my late sister-in-law's sewing machine.


Busy Sunday

Yesterday on Facebook I added a list of things I had planned to do for the day ~ 1. Drive to Shenandoah National Park and take a hik...
