Remember June and all of her treasures? During summer break my daughter and I were lucky enough to shop her estate. Today was the day I shopped her mother's estate. Matilda was her name. She lived in the home with June during her widow years. This mother and daughter pair spent long hours stitching, cooking and teaching music. These are a few of Matilda's lovely items.
Tiny notes that fall out of stationary found in almost every room of the house. With no living children to follow the family all these treasures have been sold off.
Embroidery tins filled with projects still to be done.
Labels with fonts that are long since forgotten.
Tapes and twill to replenish a dwindling supply.
Rick Rack in colors of old. All in one hundred percent cotton and ready for use.
Trims so divine I had to put my readers on to see the detail.
Chenille, glass beads, sequins, waxed cording and more.
Cards all unused that were meant for music students and friends.
A bevy of linens all worked by hand.
All different eras of children's games some still in their wrappers.
Graphics and goodies to remind of the past. This is the story of a widow Matilda and her loving daughter June who never married. June lived to be in her 90's. What a wonderful pair.
