This was my great-great-grandmother’s sewing box:
Isn’t that cool? This was passed down to my great-grandmother and then to my Granny….and now to me! Granny knows that I am “the keeper” (a.k.a. Pack Rat) and as a crafter this has a particularly special meaning.
My Granny even taped a little note inside with my great-great-grandmother’s name and birthdate. She was born in 1866!
I don’t have a clue where my great-great-grandmother got the box or who made it for her, but it has not been repainted and it is in pretty good shape. I currently have it on display on my living room shelves. I love having a little bit of family history, don’t you?
