Did you know...
that you can make an alternative to a pin cushion by
wrapping a bar of soap in fabric?

Tie the fabric in place with a pretty ribbon and
when you stick your pins in to be held,
they come out lubricated making them much
easier to slide into place on material.

 ...me thinks it is a token of healthy and gentle characteristics, when women of high thoughts
& accomplishments love to sew;
especially as they are never more at home
with their hearts than while so occupied...
Nathaniel Hawthorne...1859

MEMORYBOX

...bottle full of buttons,a child's sewing machine, the vintage measuring tapes all add to the charm...

BEAUTIFUL BUTTONS -
BEAUTIFUL MEMORIES -
BEAUTIFUL ACCESSORY
FOR SEWING ROOM.

Mother saved buttons in a round cake tin with
hand painted folk art flowers on the lid.

When I had nothing to do,
she suggested I play with the buttons

Now many years later, I still appreciate those
wonderfully coloured buttons

As I hold the shiny little buttons
that click together softly,
I am reminded of the faint memories
of lazy afternoons and
dark winter nights, soft melodies of the radio,
bathtubs filled with steamy water,
clocks that ticked loudly and
telephones with party lines.

Once again I am sitting on mother's rug
spilling buttons out of a round
cake tin with hand painted
folk art flowers on the lid.
