My embroidery needles have fabulous homes.They are cozy and warm in their castles waiting for the duty call.
These two belonged to my husband's grandmother. She bought them on one of her travels and they are actually containers of small bottled perfumes. Thin and tiny perfume tubes are inserted inside and sold as souvenirs. Aren't they gorgeous? They still smell wonderfully.
I acquired them recently and still haven't tried to refresh them a bit with a little paint and polish, but I will soon. They look a bit rugged and beaten but that is understandable since they are more than 50 years old.
I love having them especially the tubular one because it is wonderful to carry around while on the road.
We had black and heavy clouds clinging from the sky today and I couldn't make a proper photo to better capture their beauty. I guess some other time.
Have a Happy Monday wherever you are!
