A Cherished Treasure
This is my knitting box. I just love how worn and old it looks. It used to be my mother's, so it is another treasure I inherited. She kept her knitting "stuff" inside. I think my dad picked it up at an antique store but that is me purely guessing. I know my mother did not shop in antique stores.
So as you can guess, I have no idea who Jack and Estelle were, but they were in love and that is what matters. Also I am assuming one of them dabbled in the arts. Too bad Jack and Estelle did not date the box then we would know how old it is.
Would it not be cool if Estelle kept her knitting supplies in it as well? Well we can only dream of some idyllic scenario... I keep all of the needles and tools that I do not use often but do not want to get rid of or give away in this box.
I bet you already guessed that most of the needles and tools were owned by my mom. Yep, pretty neat! I consider myself a lucky gal. That is another reason I do not pare down my belongings.
It was so much fun sharing with all of you a peak at my knitting treasures.
On another cherished treasure, I received a lovely sweet surprise from Amanda at KarMama. She is one talented lady and very generous because she sent me these lovely postcards.
Blogging has introduced me to many treasures I could have never imagined!!
