    That is so neat to have such a treasure! I have my great Aunt's sewing notions as well and it includes alot of metal thimbles and old scissors and buttons, needles and such. It is so neat to see what was important to them to keep in their kits! Thanks for sharing!

    I hope you have the history written down because generations from now might not remember the whole history. Good intentions and good memories don't always go together.

    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

    I have a table of about the same vintage. The top lifts back and it has spaces with the old sock thread. and a gold painted insert with dished out spots for snaps, buttons, , etc. Then two drawers with lots of goodies. My Mom had it and when she passed away I got it. I have added some items but not taken any thing out of it at all. The finish is crackled and I have been trying to decide what to do about it. It has inlaid veneer on it. Not sure how thick it is. Jan
