I recently inherited some things from my Grandma. She loved to sew and knit, and had the most amazing collection of vintage notions. Here are some of my favorite things.

Dog Jacket Patterns

Her personal tape measure, with name label

The oldest CLOVER tracing tool I've ever seen

London Life Insurance Co. thimble, aluminum?


  1. i love the tape measurer more than anything else.

  2. Oh, I love it too. It's small and fits nicely in my knitting bag. I think my Grandma used to keep it in her cardigan pocket while she worked?

  3. these are all treasures! those dog jackets are smart looking! too bad maisy hates dogs that wear clothes, including herself!

  4. Oh, too bad! I was going to see if you wanted to use any of them for Maisy. I couldn't remember ever seeing her in any "dog clothes" though. Maybe the workroom should do a dog coat class! That'd be fun! I don't have a dog, but I do have a really large cat!
