Saturday Junk and Garden "Proofing"
We are having gorgeous Summer-like weather this weekend but I took time out to hit one estate sale before I got busy in the yard yesterday. This sale had tons of guy stuff. That fellow must have tried on every hobby he could think of and who knows, maybe sewing was one of them.
A little pile of buttons and a batch of thimbles. I especially like the advertising ones. This lot included Watkins, Sacramento Bee and New System Laundry. There was also an interesting one with a built-in thread cutter on the side. You can click the pictures bigger and see it about center. This is my third darning egg so it's official.
Lots of vintage seam binding. There was more iron-on hiding in the lot than I realized and I don't usually buy that kind but who knows, maybe one of these days I'll actually sew something - haha! Nice little lot of vintage millinery fruits.
Three new needle cards for my collection. The bottom one is badly damaged but the one at the top made up for it. It is brand new in the original glassine envelope.
Two hankies for me and a big stack of plain white ones with tatted edges that will make their way to Etsy once I do that wash/rinse/repeat thingie.
The Husband has been "proofing" the garden. The marigold are to keep the moths off the cabbages and the wire is to keep the cats from digging up the seeds and leaving little surprises it their place.
Lots done in the yard this weekend and next post will be my trip to Vintage Cottage Home vintage flea this morning.
