Help please !! Ebay Bargains and \Baby Dove Update
I am starting with a plea to all my bloggy friends and viewers. Does anyone know of one of these tins or where I could get one? My mom and nan used to have one with their pins in when I was little and I am desperate to have one for in my sewing box.
I know it may seem a bit strange but I love things that remind me of people and cant believe that they threw theirs away. If anyone does have one I am willing to send my Cath Kidston pin tin as a swap. I am not too bothered about it being perfect - just not badly damaged. Here's hoping someone can help.....
Here is another couple of my eBay purchases. There is more but I cant find what file I put the photos in so will have to take them again.
I love this little workbox tin - anemones are some of favourite flowers and I have a bit of a tin habit so I just couldn't let it go to someone Else's house - could I ?
I love that it still had some of the old sewing items in it - I always like to imagine who used it and what for ? What did they make?
I know there is not a lot inside but it still feeds my heart to look through and fell that I have saved them.
I also bought another old box with sewing things in - the box was awful and on its last legs but the sewing stuff in it looked great.
Unfortunately when the seller sent it he had
taken a lot out despite advertising it with contents and showing numerous photos - so I was not a happy bunny - he is the worst seller I have come across in five years and it doesn't look like I am going to get him to send the missing items.
I also bought these old silks , still in their boxes. I don't know if I will ever be able to use them - I just like looking at them.
COLIN UPDATE: Colin is still doing well - we have started his supplement for his rubbery beak and it seems much better. He is starting to show an interest in pecking at some seeds - so hopefully we will be able to wean him soon and he is practising little flights regularly. Thanks so much for all your good wishes and kind thoughts for Colin - I am convinced that the energy created has helped him recover so far.
I remember reading about an experiment where heart patients were prayed for and their recovery was much quicker that those that weren't so maybe the blog has helped my little baby dove.
Can you pray for my husband to like ironing ????
