Show & Tell Friday...


{Image from here}
I discovered the My Romantic Home blog entirely by accident - as one does, and am very happy that I did as it is so pretty.

I have not played "show and tell" since I was a small child growing up in NZ so thought that participating in the show and tell Friday event on this blog would be fun...


These are some old Parisian buttons that I found at a local vide grenier.
These look great framed or alternatively arranged together with other vintage sewing items.
I also bought this box of sewing cotton, I love the box with the pretty fish and the colour of the cotton is such a delicate pink colour.

And who could resist, these fabulous darning wool cards, they are tres joli....


You will find more details about these in the fabulously French online shop which is being updated every couple of days at present.
I think that the "show and tell" idea is a great one and am sure that you all have lots to show and tell, so if so you know where to do this now :-)
Bon vendredi a tous,

  10. Your buttons reminded me of a lovely Victorian Inn we used to stay here on the coast of Maine before we moved back. The owner had the most gorgeous antique buttons displayed in beautiful oval frames and I learned there are actually templates for displaying them. Lovely finds you have there, I love the pink cotton too! Lili

  12. Oh wow! Your post reminded me that I have some of my grandmother's sewing items that she had and never used. I believe I will get them out and create some type of display.

    Thanks for sharing with us today.
