My sewing box...

After many years of wanting a sewing box, looking in charity shops, carboot sales etc.  Finding some that needed lots of attention or others that just didnt have that something special...

I need look no more!!

In our local charity shop i found this gem! 
 Beautiful looking with lots of threads, needles, pins and buttons....ooh the buttons! 
  I slid the little draw along and found a tub underneath...a button tub! 
 Still unsure on whether to paint and reupholster the lid - maybe I will live with it the way it is for a while and see how it goes :)


  1. What a great find! you certainly have an eye for a bargain. I too just love buttons and have my Mum's button box still and have fun with the granddaughters rummaging through it..but would never use any of them!!
