Our only DD and our grandpups were here for several days around Easter weekend. She and I shopped and ate and shopped some more 🙂  Years ago I xs’ed a Just Nan piece called Great Expectations with a beautiful charm of a nest with speckled eggs in it.  Valerie has wanted this for a while and I decided to give it to her now even tho it was going to be for her when she was “expecting”.  The pic with frame is sort of washed out, but the close up of  the xs shows things a little better.  Also, she saw a McCoy cookie jar at an antique place and I told her I have the same one at home.  So that went home with her, too LOL  This is probably about 35 years old at least.  It was sad to see her and the pups leave for home, but the visit was so much fun and we hope to see them again soon. 🙂

I recently won this wonderful sewing box on ebay.  It has a nice etched mirror in the top and a soft cushion for pins above that. On the outside in front there are posts for spools and a nice area inside the box for sewing notions. This is apx. 11″ x 11″ x 3 1/3″. The spools on and in the box are from a great-aunt of my xs friend Sharon and the lady was a excellent seamstress in her day.  I have a collection of smaller vintage pin cushions and sewing things, but this box may be my favorite. sewing-box-heart-old-spools-from-ss-1sewing-box-heart-old-spools-from-ss-2
