Now, what are we to make of the presence of four naval buttons? They were also made in Paris...Back to our lady (oh no, an unintended pun!). I meant our sewing tin lady, but, as you see, she had some devotion to Our Lady, too. Do you think this came from Notre Dame in Paris?A jumble (now sorted) of embroidery silks, lace, shoe laces, straps and loads of elastic - great, as I have something that needs mending with loads of elastic!
This beautiful blue and white embroidered ribbon, which matches my blog so well! I think this is my favourite of the tin's contents. And perched on it, one of those lovely French name-tape thingies; just a number 6. You have to see the much wider collection of red name tapes that both Lululiz and Laura have - just click on their names because I've linked you to the right posts. If you can read Laura's without smiling, or Lululiz's without wanting to go round and burgle her house, then you should not be reading this blog. And, oh yes, Lululiz, just a little crochet hook there, no committments...A very tatty little scrap of ribbon?No - a case for two very cheap pendants, but they do contain real gold! I don't suppose they have value, but I do suspect that the dealer who sold me the tin hadn't bothered to open the 'scrap of ribbon' to find them.
