Every once in a while something like this finds me. About a month or so ago Jim asked me if I wanted some boxes of sewing items that were looking for a new home, or soon to be thrown out, that were from a woman who had recently passed away. All told, four boxes showed up. I spent a good portion of the month sorting through the fabrics, what nots and notions. I love looking at all the old things and wondering just what some of these things are…like this yellow tool. I really haven’t the slightest idea what it would be used for.
There was a dental pick among all of these things so perhaps it has something to do with teeth?
And lots of buttons, needles, snaps and fasteners. I just love looking at these old packages. The products have not changed at all, just the prices. Some of these say .29cents!
I salvaged what I wanted and the rest went off to the Salvation Army. The Salvation Army here in town has a sewing and craft section and I know these will go to a good cause. What about you, have you ever been gifted the mysterious box of sewing items?
And what about your sewing items today. Do you ever think what is going to happen to them once you are gone?
Some things to think about I guess…
