Another busy week in the garden popping in and out in between torrential showers trying to keep on top of the huge weeds. We are now starting to reap the rewards of our hard work and are harvesting salads as we need them, the spring onions are a delight.
As is normal for a Friday I am once again joining Amy over at Love Made My Home for the weekly get together. This week I am sharing five more treasures from my craft room, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Is a wonderful pair of wooden knitting needles, they were given to me as a gift and it was suggested that they were mid century.
They were made by Abel Morrall, which is a famous Redditch company.
If only they could talk, it would be lovely to know what had been knitted using these beautiful needles.
Another wooden article is a darning mushroom.
I love that its looks so well used, a skill that is not often used these days.
Sewing machine needles, they are American and were brought back from one of my trips to Renninger's Antique Centre Mount Dora. Such a beautiful wooden case made by The Boye Needle Co.
Always a bonus when the memories of buying or receiving the article are so good. I certainly have some amazing treasured memories of Mount Dora in Florida.
A hem marker is another treasure that takes pride of place in Mamas Mercantile, it has never been used by me but it is certainly cherished.
The wood is beautiful and interestingly has a few pencil markings so it has certainly been used, how many hems have been altered over the years?
Finally a rack of cotton spools, the rack appears to have been home made but what I love is the cotton spools, they are a real delight.
Five treasures that are a wonderful addition and enhance my craft room.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. My plan is to get my shopping done today and catch up with some housework. We will browse the local paper later to establish which fetes and such are on this weekend always a nice time of year for local events.
See you soon.
