Yesterday my neighbour popped round and asked if I would like the bits of fabric she found in her Mum's blanket chest.
I nearly fainted with happiness!
It was so interesting to hear her talk about the dresses she had made from them, and for what occasion she wore them.
It reminded me just how precious and loved their clothes were before mass produced fashion hit our high streets.
I am going to try and make special things from these treasures so that they will stay loved and have new stories to tell.
And look at these beauties I found in the charity shop!
I am obsessed with tiny things.
Do you remember having blancmanges like this for your birthday parties?
This frying pan, complete with a full English is my favourite!
Can't wait to add them to my Nanna brooches!
