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

These old pieces are sweet sentimental values. This one is a beautiful piece indeed.
Ohmygosh Val, that is so sweet. Love, LOve it. What a treasure. Have a wonderful week.
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.

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.

This is a very pretty vintage treasure! I never saw a thimble holder before. It is so sweet that it was made to look like a lady's fine hat!

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.

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
