Well, I inherited my Mom's scissors. She had some that were her mother's. I don't use them, so they don't really count. I really only use about 4. My two favorites are Kai dressmakers and embroidery scissors. I would grab them in a fire! Just sayin...

I have never bothered to count mine, either for sewing or the rest of the house, NO ONE uses my sewing scissors, they have always been off limits. My two children knew that was a BIG NO NO when they were growing up if they bothered my sewing stuff.
So funny, I guess I was about the same way. When I was about 3 or 4, a HS student that I loved dearly played the piano at our Church. One Sunday, she came with a new short hair cut. My hair was really long, and mother always washed and curled it on long rollers every Sat.. Well that Sunday after Church, because Jan had a new hair cut I decided I needed one too. While mother was preparing lunch, I proceeded to cut my hair, only had one side cut when she caught me. What a mess. Bad part about it, my dad was lying on the bed watching me, (I was in their bedroom,) and didn't stop me. Mother asked him why he didn't stop me this is what he told her, "Well I was going to see if she would really do it" needless to say mother was mad at both of us.

I have so many pair of scissors that I would be all day finding and counting them.. I've bought quite a few pair, (that's QUITE a few pair) plus I've been given some, and I've inherited many pair from my Mother, both of my grandmothers, and now a bunch more from my recently deceased MIL... I keep small ones in a shoe box, large ones in a basket, and then I have them in drawers, and in the cutting table, in work baskets.. all over the place!
