THREADS OF LOVE
Threads Of Love
I love vintage sewing notions to include buttons, thread and beautiful thread boxes.
This is a beautiful wooden thread box with the Clark's O.N.T. label on the inside.
I love the ornate clasp on the front of the box and it has a beautiful patina.
I also recently found a thread box here in Korea. This one is more modern but still pretty neat.
The spools are skinny and long instead of short and chunky like we have in the States.
I have actually used some of the Korean thread and it is really nice. I plan to bring a set home with me when we return to the States.
And now for my new threads!! Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a thing for dresses and for dressing up. Recently I added two dresses to my collection that are just over the moon gorgeous. One I ma saving for our Ball in May but the other one I can share with you now.
My Cinderella Dress
This is kind of like a quilted dress. The images sewn into it are carriages and glass slippers. It has a pretty tulle underskirt and more.
Love the ribbon lace up back.
The beautiful tag.
This is stitched on to the side hem of the dress.
I am thinking I should so wear this to see the new Cinderella movie, what do you think?
Loving my new threads!!!
