A vintage surprise!
Hi everyone, hope your weekend is off to a great start!
My weekend is starting off with a surprise parcel from a dear blogging friend!
I have been doing some hand stitching lately, and started searching for a "real thimble."
The kind you buy at the craft store today are not the type I remember my Mom using.
My friend, Linda from
sent me 2 beautiful antique thimbles from her Etsy shop, along with some other surprises!
Here are a few other goodies Linda sent with the thimbles.
This vintage Bingo card, I've seen these on blogs before, but never in person. Linda knows how much I
like vintage games. She always finds a lot of really neat game pieces.
I remember Mom using Rick Rack on some of my dresses when I was a little girl.
I also love reading the packaging here, it was "laboratory tested" by J.C. Penney & Co.
Beautiful fall colors of seam binding and cotton thread!
I just had to show you one more view of the thimbles.
Look at the little bird etched on the small thimble, isn't that neat?
Thanks again Linda, I love everything!
I hope you'll visit Linda's Blog to see all of her beautiful vintage finds, and see what she has in her Etsy shop.
This photo is from a selection of photos I took in my courtyard the other day.
I was taking them directly into the afternoon sunlight.
A professional would probably wonder what the heck I was thinking taking the photo into the sun, but I kind of like the effect I got, what do you think?
Just wanted to also send out a Happy Thanksgiving weekend to all my blogging friends in Canada!
I'm off to enjoy some more of this beautiful weather we are having.
See you soon,
