Tuesday Treasure- Vintage Scissors

Are you a collector?

I am a rather casual collector of vintage embroidery scissors.....

This is my entire collection! LOL!

You have to start somewhere I suppose....

This pair are quite delicate...

I bought them in Paris last year!

This pair are only stainless steel contrary to what the impression given in the photo....

I bought these at a market in Victoria last year.....

Quite a bargain I thought, for $5.00!

And this little pair were a present for a birthday a few years ago.

I don't use them, it is just lovely to have a tangible connection to the past.

I do treasure them- head over to Melody's blog for more Tuesday Treasures!

(Now, I have noticed that I am up to 50 followers and this is my 100th post!

So stay tuned for......


I just need to get a few things sorted.)

Happy sewing!
