I have a ton of pictures of other stuff to show you, so I'll show you two of my favorites from our visit:
Bill's Gram looking out of the window at him.
I guess technically it should be Bill's dad instead of aunt, but she's at least the same generation...
(and I told you Olivia sulked half the time)
So, when the trip was planned, Bill's aunt told me that she was going to bring me her serger (!) and some fabric she had bought to make skating costumes with. I was expecting a box and the machine.
I just inherited every crafty bit from his side of the family almost. Holy cow! We are talking vintage notions, patterns, fabric, yarn, crochet thread... I've barely scratched been able to go through it and have been blown away by the things I've found.
Here are some of my finds so far....
Latch Hook kit... reminds me of my aunt
Beautiful needlepoint wall-hanging
The "treasure chest"!
Do you see the Googly Eye buttons? Do you see them?
Vintage thread, some on wooden spools
Beautiful old pins
Odds and ends...
Those were just the highlights. If you want to see more of the treasure in the box, you can check it out here.
I've not even touched the big bins and there's a gun case (yes, gun case) full of crochet thread. I have no clue where to put this or what to do with most of it, but I'm so proud to have it. I'm sure there will be more posts of the neat stuff I'll uncover.
