crazy about scissors?
Hold onto your garters ladies,
look what arrived in today's mail!
NEW scissors to tug at your heartstrings!
The Vineyard Scissor...
Just 3 1/2" long with winding vine engraved details. Available in Gold and Primitive Black...they look like antiques!
How many of you scissor hoarders out there own a pair of fish scissors? If not, all scissor collections need a pair of fish, no?
3 1/2" scissors in the shape of a sword fish....and the best part is they don't even stink! Available in primitive black and silver.
And because I'm a
scissor freak, scissor hoarder, or sucker for scissors,
lover of scissors,
I am most excited about this...
a sweet little chatelaine !
Similar to the chatelaines worn by a housekeeper in the 19th century,
to hold the necessary household items,
such as scissors, thimble, keys or watch.
I have chose to decorate mine with old buttons and pearls. The chatelaine hangs from a piece of vintage silk.
I've been wearing it as I finish up the piece that is currently in my hoop,
"Let Heaven & Nature Sing".
A wintery piece to get out for the holidays,
but will be one that can be kept out all winter.
The finish is still a bit uncertain,
but I am hoping to adorn it with antique sheet music
in a collage-fashion.
I have these Chatelaine Scissor Cases on order,
more on these to follow at a later date.
It's a beautiful autumn day here in the heartland, the hot dry summer is making for some spectacular autumn colors. Our lake is now still as can be, looks like a sheet of glass...an autumn time occurrence here only...we are usually windy with white caps.
I must try to find a few moments to sneak away from pattern instructions & stitching to get out and enjoy it and maybe even snap a few pics.
Have a good weekend,
