This is my treasure today: a sewing kit probably made in the XIX century. I found it many years ago in an antique shop on the Ponte Vecchio; I gave this to my Mother to keep with her collection of old ivory little objects. Now that I moved, I took it back and sometimes I take time to look at it.
Guardo con meraviglia i piccoli oggetti contenuti in uno spazio così angusto: ditale, punteruolo, ago da lana, agoraio e forbicine.
I marvel at the little objects contained in such a tight space: thimble, awl (I am uncertain that this translates ‘punteruolo’), big needle, needle case and scissors.
Today had to be the last day, instead I read on Clare’s blog that starting from next week ‘Tusday’s treasures’ will move to Melody’s.
