My Grandma recently gave me these old ice cream containers (note that the one on the right says it is artificially coloured and flavoured, like this is a preferred option - how times have changed)
Both of them are filled to the brim with all her embroidery floss. So many different colours. What a collection.
Her arthritis is so bad now, she says she will never use them ever again. Actually, she has not used them for years, but has held onto them just in case. This gift makes me happy and sad all at the same time.
I feel so honoured to have received them. Every time I have rummaged through them looking for just the right colour, I get a little goose bumpy.
Now I need a lovely box like Clare's to store them in. Many more treasures to be found over at her blog.
Hope you are having a great day.
