Vintage Thimble Holder for Mosaic Monday

Thimbleholder for mosaic
I















I was looking for something in a drawer for St. Patrick’s Day which is next week and I came upon some boxes that I had forgotten about.   In one of the boxes was this lovely little vintage thimble holder.  It belonged to my husband’s family and I do not know if they made it or purchased it.  It is so sweet.  I can sew but I have not put those talents to work in years.  I can still sew a button on a shirt but the sewing machine has dust on it.   This lovely little piece would have been in the sewing kit of the lady of the house and handy for a quick mend.   Someone put a lot of work into it.   Hope you like it too.
Stop by Mary’s at DearLittleRedHouse for Mosaic Monday.  You will find real treasures there too.    Have a great week.   Valerie

Never heard of such a thing. very cute. I actually have a couple of thimbles that belonged to my husband's grandmother. I love using them when I quilt since i always like to think my hand is touching where theirs has been. kind of a connection across generations.

The thimble holders are unique. I don't think I have ever seen one until now! They are very lovely! Have a grand day! Cathy

That is beautiful. I've never seen anything like that before. My mind starts wandering back through the years wondering about who made it.

Valerie,

How lovely. I recently rediscovered my mother's sewing box full of treasures. I shall have to photograph it and make a mosaic someday - not enough hours in the day!

Have a wonderful week.

That is a wonderful little piece. It would be adorable set up on an antique peddle sewing machine.

What a great treasure. Did it have a thimble in it so you knew what it was? Cute mosaic.

What a fun mosaic. I don't think I've ever seen a thimble holder either. You asked about Cabela's on my blog. It's a huge sportman's store like Bass Pro Shop.

That is just so beautiful. I can remember playing with my grandma's thimbles though I've never seen a little cover like the one you have.
