I have been collecting a small assortment of vintage sewing stuff lately. Baskets, buttons, thread, notions... I'm not really doing it on purpose. I didn't set out to do it but it seems every time I run into old sewing stuff at a thrift shop or antique store I can't leave without it. There's just something about it that draws me in and stirs up memories of my mom sewing away and having this stuff spread out all over the kitchen table.
The basket itself is not in great shape but I just couldn't wait to get home and go through all the cool stuff inside. It's like a newly discovered treasure.
I also bought this box full of bias tape and this bag of crochet thread. The thread was only a dollar for the whole bag. I've never used this small thread before but the red, green and white colors screamed Christmas so I know I can use them for something.
These are my vintage treasure for the week.
What treasures have you found lately?
