"Show and Tell Friday"
Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!" Do you have a something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, an antique find. Your show and tell can be old or new. Use your imagination and dig through those old boxes in your closet if you have to! Feel free to share pictures and if there's a story behind your special something, that's even better!
Some of you may have already seen my show and tell for this week. I shared pictures of it about a year ago.
It is a Victorian child's sewing box that I found it on Ebay a few years ago.
It is full of doll clothes, ribbon and lace. Unfortunately a lot of the silk has shattered over the years.
Everything was sewn by hand, including the lace and even the trim on the tiny sailor shirt.
This cape is my favorite outfit.
These patterns were tucked away in the bottom of the box.
Three tiny shoes. The top one is smaller than my thumb.
Three keys were also found inside. I wonder what they unlocked long ago...I also wonder who the little girl was that worked so lovingly on all these tiny doll clothes.
Thank you for looking at my Victorian sewing box!
