    What a great treasure. I took some of my great grandmothers things and made a special box for each of my Daughter's and Daughter-in-laws. Called it a Piece of Love from your Great Grandmother. They adored it and treasure it to this day.

    What a wonderful gift! Can't you just picture your grandmother working with these tools? I often shop at estate sales and just love finding sewing boxes. It's sad that the family doesn't keep them, since it is so much of the heart of the woman. I think your grandmother's heart is smiling and there will be a little bit of her in every stitch you sew.

    Just having the basket is a treasure in itself. I was lucky that my aunt just kept the box.

    Also, what a wonderful saying - thank you for sharing that!! I may have to embroider that and put it over the serger and box!!

    It is just lovely! and a treasure to keep. I see some thread in that drawer that I still have! Belding Corticelli silk thread on those small wood spools etc., C&Clark labels on some, etc. I have a few spools that were .15 cents or .25 cents. It is interesting now to see that we pay over $2.00 for a spool of Mettler or Gutterman.

    Whenever my friends and I are out "antiquing" we are always on the lookout for sewing treasures in good condition. Thanks for posting your pictures!
