I have written before about the benefits of hand-me-down sewing machines and the surprise notions found within them. I am also the current owner of my aunt’s fantastic sewing basket/wooden tackle box. I love it so much! There are three layers, each folding out to reveal many a treasure. Some of the notions I have collected, but many of them were hers. One day I will find out the stories behind the randomness – for example, why do you think there is one suspender-clip? Who wore them? Better yet, is there a picture floating around somewhere of someone wearing them?
