    What a nice sewing box. As we complain about our messy sewing rooms, think about how much a woman accomplished with so little just a couple of generations ago. And she KNEW where her scissors were every time she needed them!

    It looks like something your grandfather might have made just for her. Do you know the history of it? My granddaddy madd all sorts of things like that for my grandmother including a drop-leaf sewing table for her to make my father's layette on. His sister inherited it and then it came to me as the only one interested in sewing - I made my 2 sons' layettes and some quilts using it - then one of the sons 'adopted' it - I actually hope to get it back at some point when I have a bigger place - nobody's using it for sewing or quilting, and that is it's destiny!!

    You might want to take out the scissors and place a little sewing machine oil on the screws and such to help slow down on the rusting going on. Don't want it to spread.

    Thanks for reminding me, kt53sews - I had thought about that (it has been in storage for three years) but had forgotten to do so!!

    I bought a small sewing table at an auction several years ago. It came from England and it was just like someone had left it with thread, needles,pins,emery,buttons and other odds and ends in it. A pincushion in the lid. I couldn't discard anything. I use it to set my VCR on. My daughter has put it on her list of things she wants.
