This is a printer's drawer that I have in my sewing room with some of my sewing memorabilia collection and other little odds and ends that I think are interesting.
If you look close, you'll see there are a few "new" items, little miniatures sewing what-nots from scrapbooking supplies. I can bump them out as I add to my collection!
This is one of my favorite pieces I picked up at an estate sale here in town. It's a wishbone from a chicken that has been crocheted around. It holds a thimble and then the woman's scissors would hang from the little loops. I guess when you're short on supplies you improvise and we know back in the day--those women could improvise!!
This little blue scottie dog is a shade pull.
This is the printer's drawer in my son's room. I love mine, but when I look at his I'm not sure which one I like best!
He's learning to play the harmonica.
He likes springs. I always think I'll use some in a project some day, but you know they are pretty neat all by themselves.
And of course watches and locks--I pick him up watches when I can part with them from an auction or garage sale.
There is so many projects out there that use the insides of watches--but again, I almost like them just as is.
