Inspired by Liss' post last week, I decided to post some of my own little trinkets and treasures.
I found the vintage kittens found at two different sales. They sit on my desk so I can see them every day. The kitten reading the book is sitting on a little bitty vintage doily.
The wood boxes belonged to my
DH's grandmother and great-
grandmother. They sit on top of my dresser. His grandmothers used them to hold sewing items. I have vintage sewing items in one and vintage desk items in the other (all from his family as well!). The book was a find at an auction and I have a small collection of advertising rulers. Only one is showing in the photo but the rest are laying down in front of the boxes.
A very dear friend of a friend made this quilt for me using scraps that my Mom had been saving her whole adult live to make a quilt! There are fabrics in it the my grandmother had left from clothes she made as well as fabric left from clothes my Mom made. I can still remember the outfits that some of the scraps came from.
