Vintage Thread

It seems I have acquired too many wooden spools of thread (according to my husband!). Every time I come across the sweet little spools full of color, I must have them! Just about every estate sale I've been to this summer with Country Mouse, there always seems to be some of these vintage spools calling my name.

I've sorted through my collection and determined what I can part with (for now)...These are wonderful for display in a glass jar or for use in photos. I'll miss them, but I am only allowed to keep what fits in my thread case! If you think you might like to add to your collection, visit our Etsy shop. Happy sewing (and thrifting!).

Sewing Patterns!

I arrived home to this one day last week...


Any guesses on what these boxes contain?! Our sewing patterns! 
Now available in our Etsy shop.

A little background on the names...we decided to name our patterns after some of the hardworking women (mom, grandmas, great grandmas, aunts) who had a part in raising either myself or my mom (Country Mouse). It's difficult to put into words what each of these ladies did to prepare us for the world, but we know it sparked our creativity. We hope you have someone in your life that you can thank for a part of your creativity too! Happy Sewing!
