Thursday's Treasure

Years ago I found one of these sewing cases in a thrift store. It was broken and dirty and $8, yet I still heavily considered buying it. I left it behind and never forgot how sweet it was, even in its state of disrepair.

I found this brand new one- with its original paperwork!- in an antique store last week. Can you believe it??? I mean, this is from the 50s! It was marked $20, but was on sale for 40% off. No way was I letting it get away.

Look at that swoon-inducing aqua color, and those sweet little kitties. This case was meant to be mine!

Donna~ This one's mine... I can't bear to part with it. It's actually the perfect size for the amount of *sewing* that I do. If I ever find another, I'm snatching it up for the shop, though. Unless it's pink... then I'll have to keep that one too, lol!!
