My friend, Char, gave me this wonderful vintage notions cupboard for my birthday. Each little drawer is filled with tiny treasures. I felt like a child, again, as I would collect little items when I was small.
The long narrow cupboard is hand painted and the drawers are labeled with the words, buttons, thread, snaps, pins, utility and needles.
Some of the tiny gifts included this silver measuring tape. It is much used and I when I hold it in the palm of my hand I feel connected to someone before me who loved to sew as well.
The lovely pincushion, once red and now faded to a perfect pink was a joy to discover. It fits perfectly on the top of the cupboard.
Last year, Char gave me this vintage scissor holder. I love how they compliment each other with the same hand-painted details.
I've placed them on a wall in my sewing room where I can enjoy them daily. They look like they've always belonged in that space, don't you agree?
