Thank you so much for sharing it with us...just beautiful. The button drawer was great, but the thing that really got me was the scissors. So worn, and beautiful, it made me wonder just how many things were made with them, and the hundreds of times your grandmother's loving hands held them.

That is really something to treasure. You have a bit of your grandparents and vintage sewing material. I have several old items that I purchased at various antique shows and stores, but not the emotional attachment that you have. Plus, I spent a small fortune buying these things. I love them though
