"I'd Like to Know if You've Got the Notion..."


Why do I find myself "collecting" these things?

Bits and Pieces of Lace


Bobbins and Buttons Galore...


And my newest love...vintage compacts...


And of course...Keys!

These are a few of my favorite things...

  2. I'm a sewer, and buttons hold a special fascination for me, as well. I can spend hours sorting antique buttons - something theraputic about the feel of them. The compacts are BEAUTIFUL - Happy White Wednesday - Tanya

    Mine are all stacked up in baskets just to look at it! They remind me of my Grandma!

  7. I am not even a sewer, but I love finding buttons and bobbins. And, like Tammy said, they remind me of my Grammy.

  11. I love notions, too.
    I don't have any idea why we like to collect these items. I think it has something to do with being a little girl, seeing these items in our relatives homes and want the items for ourselves when we grow up. Just my thoughts on the question.
    Thanks for sharing your special items.
