It’s the day after….the day after the latest blizzard and once again we have snirt! Look at the north side of the barn where it took the brunt of the blowing snow.
Last fall I believe I promised to take pictures of all the sewing caddies on the shelf in my sewing room and I know they’re all dirty and need dusting so today was the day.
Birds of all kinds were popular.
Here’s a donkey and more birds. In the drawer was this cancelled stamp.
I have three roosters, all painted different – I think he was very popular.
An elephant and a stocking leg with Red Cross pins dated 1920 and 1921.
A wall caddy and two more birds.
Another rooster and a very decorated bird of some kind.
A wooden “head” with scissor handles around eyes and spools for hair maybe?
A duck and another bird.
Looks like a water bird and an easy chair.
Two sewing rockers and a little boy. Here’s the bottom of the little rocker.
It says “To my favorite mother from Janice. 1956”
A tray of tiny sewing scissors and a bird.
Hanging sewing caddies.
A large hanging sewing caddy with darning eggs on top shelf.
A small shelf with a big assortment of sewing items.
A collection of toy sewing machines – none in good shape – all from junk stores and flea markets.
And now they’re all dusted and back on the shelf ! What a good job to be done with!
The wind chill today was around 40 below! Tomorrow is not going to be much better. We are going to a funeral tomorrow and I am going to play for two different funerals next week. I’ll write a post when I can – even if it’s short. I have lots of practicing to do!
Stay warm, Everybody!
