The Seamstress

Recently our elderly neighbor passed away.  I am so sad that I was never able to get to know her.  We went to a yard sale at her home and all her family was there. There were several other elderly women full of life and jokes.  They were such fun people.  I loved talking with them.  I know this might all sound shallow and weird, but I loved looking through this woman's home.  She was one talented gal.  She had a whole room full of old vintage fabrics, books, thread, everything a crafty gal would have.  She even had dress and shirt samples hanging up that she had made.  I'm sad she is gone and I wasn't able to learn from her.  She did have great taste and I hope she would be happy to know that her things are going to be put to good use.  Here are some finds from her craft room.

I hope you enjoyed taking a peek at this woman's passions.  She sure seemed amazing. 

Have a fine Tuesday...
