So a little more o the presents I got for Christmas, from my Dad and Step mum I got a series of little boxes.
Box 1 is red and covered in velvet and was lovely to open.
Inside is a very old knitting set, I'm not sure all these bits are original to the box but the double pointed needles and the thimble are.
The next box was a little more confusing to open as it is a very old cardboard box with a sticker for a opticians on it.
Inside was more old knitting/crochet paraphernalia, including stitch holders and ivory handles crochet hooks
Also in the box was a fold out tape measure with all the needle sizes on it.
The third box had me a little confused as no one really expects to get a tin of Colman's mustard for Christmas!
But by this point I'm wise to my dear step mums games and quickly open it to reveal an amazing selection of vintage buttons
I think these 30's ones are my favourite, not sure what I will use them for yet but it will be something special.
Also in the box was this amazing belt buckle, I think I may knit a belt for it but an going to spend some time searching out the right yarn to do it justice.
So there you have it, my collection of little boxes, I'm beginning to realise that my step mum could put most of us to shame with her thrifting ways!
