The parcel man brought me my great-grandmother's sewing box yesterday.
It contains buttons of varying sizes and colours.
And things that may look like buttons but have clearly been put there by one of my prankster uncles (yes, that's sweets wrapping paper).
And "Chinese thread" (I presume it is linen thread - do any Danes know?)
And a beautiful little container of French linen thread. I dare not break this open. So pretty.
And old coinage. 1960, 1969 and 1985, respectively.
And this is my favourite: a button from one of Momse's dresses. The colours & design are so her. I miss her.
