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.
