My mom gifted me an old sewing basket that she picked up at an Antique Store she visited a few weeks back.
I love to look into other people’s lives, seeing what and how they kept things.
She used old tin containers, now vintage.
To store tiny buttons, safety pins and snaps.
And this keychain I assume was a promotional item used by the fabric store that she shopped.
Kay-Det shoulder boards.
I cleaned up the basket and plan on using it myself.
And remembered a post that I saw here on using old wood spools and decided to make me a few.
Yes, I know it's a safety hazard to use a hand saw this way.
But I was to lazy to clamp them down.
After sawing a little through the side
They make perfect holders for pictures
And vintage postcards.
