S is for sewing or, in this case, for Safeway! This is a vintage needle pack that I found at an estate sale. Maybe Safeway grocery stores gave them away for advertising at some point.
The needles are all still packed away neatly inside.
And the back features fun ad graphics for Cragmont soda!
Here’s a small sample of my buttons in jars, boxes, bottles, and bags…
Check out my sewing machine cabinet drawers. I think they’re from an old Singer. Haven’t totally figured out what to do with them yet…but I love them!
Anne, one of our Leisure Arts in-house designers, offered to share the collection her mom has in her sewing room: wooden spools, thread on spools, jars of buttons, a darning ball and darning thread, sewing machine tools, tins of floss and buttons, and a wonderfully huge strawberry pincushion. (I want some wooden spools…I’ve only got couple!)
Anne also took pictures in her own workroom. She’s got a multitude of little jars stuffed with goodies (obviously we’re both enamored with the idea of treasures stored in jars) and her own sewing machine drawers (so glad I’m not the only one hooked on orphaned drawers!).
She’s also made great use of vases, bottles, and other fun containers to display her buttons and threads!
