  4. WOW! WHat a score. I really, truly adore that sewing box.

  5. A dear aunt of mine had that same sewing box but it had legs or a base. Its been so long ago I can’t really remember. I had hoped it would still be in her possessions when she passed away, but there was this garage sale, you see, and well you know the rest. Anyway I think its a terrific box and thanks for a memory lost tucked in my brain with dust on it.


  6. Mary Ann….what great finds. I have the same sewing box but it has legs underneath it and i love it. I’m sure you will fill it up with all the cool goodies you find.
