Hommer


One Easter we did marbleized Easter eggs. I remember they had some sort of special dipping involved. More than one time in the cups I think. My mother was not impressed, having twice the mess.  We however were thrilled with the artistic effect that resulted on the eggs.


Hommer Sewing Kits


Ingenuity and beauty in small packages.


Lazy Susans aren't just for the kitchen.


Thread spools that feed like candy machines.


Kittens playing with yarn.


Beaded base and marbled to perfection.


This one was found in near mint condition.


I haven't the heart to fill it yet.  It is so beautiful on its own.

Another thing learned or brought to my attention in blogland. When I read your title I thought "What the heck is a hommer?". Now I know and will have to be on the hunt.

I've never seen or heard of these before either but they sure are pretty. I'm so impressed with the "finds" I see on blogs that I can't wait for the yard/garage/estate sales to start!
Trying to catch up on my "reading" and I have to say that your newest apron made my eyes BOING right out of their sockets! You have a gift girl!!
xoxo
Happy Easter!

Love when I learn something new. I've never seen these (at least knowing what they were, I should say) and now you've put me on the lookout for them.

I don't think I have ever seen sewing kits such as these. I may need to start me a new collection. It would be hard for me to fill them, too, unless of course, I had lots of vintage sewing things to display.
