Beth, over at Love Laugh Quilt had a super idea to have a linky to share our sewing room vintage pieces - our own little museum. I'm a day late - but you can link up thru the week, so join in.
I have a lot of tins. They are from my great gran, great aunties, god mother, and grand mother. I can't get most of them open anymore - they are loaded with old threads, buttons, snaps, hooks, lace. But I will treasure them as they are rather than try to pry them open.
Yes, that's an old cigar tin - my great gran (and anties) were cigar smokers. The little flip top tin does open, but those buttons are in a box as my grandson loves to use this as his 'treasure chest' when he comes.
Another cigar tin and flat iron - I have lots of flat irons all thru the house - door stoppers these days.
I don't have a machine as old as some - but my sweet and faithful old New Home is a real work horse and I wouldn't trade her for anything. Actually, she was my SIL's mother's machine and she gifted it on to me.
Of course my old Potter's drying rack. I think my one auntie dabbled in pottery (earthenware) and then I did in the 60-70's - now it is for my pre-cut recycle barrels and containers of NEW buttons and beads. I should set up some of my museum treasures on this instead.
Lots of old quilt racks, but this one is probably the oldest one. It is very delicate and we use it for table runners to display in the shop - afraid a quilt's weight would break it.
This is actually my mother's little collection - old thimbles, collector's thimbles and various miniature machines. I know she has a lot more somewhere.
So this is part of our 'vintage' here at VroomansQuilts - please link up and share yours.
