"I'll get you my little pretties!"


I went to a fantabulous estate sale recently....picked up some old old patterns and buttons and stuff....I was in heaven.  She had stacks and stacks....did I say "Stacks"....of old fabric that I wished I would have looked over...but at the time I was interested in the notions.  Anyway, I found a box of old spools of thread....as you can see, they are so pretty.  I was going to sell them on my Etsy shop, but decided I can't part with them.  At least half of them are 100% pure silk...so nice.  Plus, with my alterations business, I won't have to run out to the store so often to find that weird color......

ah, why didn't I go through the fabric.  What I did see was really kinda old and musty.  She was a seamtress who worked at Singer Company....she was in her 90s....I wish I could have met her....

I always think I'll have a color of thread at home so I don't buy any, then I realize that is the only color I don't have!!!I sent my husband to buy some off white yesterday. Off white, of course I'll have off white, nope!

Wow! pretty pretty threads....jackpot!
I wouldn't part with it either! Plus you know the seamstress who passed away would want her old sewing stuff to be loved and used.

What a fabulous haul. I keep waiting for the day when I can run up on a sale like that.
