This old velvet pin cushion belonged to my great grandmother.
My Mom gave it to me along with some other sewing items this week.
I love that it is heart shaped and that the original pink has turned a lovely mauve brown color.
There is just a remnant of silk pink ribbon at the top.
It has old steel pins still embedded here and there.
I remember my great grandmother Laura and my great grandfather Sidney as well.
He used to play the harmonica and dance around the kitchen when we were very little.
I love that I have this treasure that once belonged to my mother's grandmother...
my Nana's mother...the lovely lady who I was named after.
Internet access is spotty up here at the lake...
This afternoon was lovely...
Rain falling tonight...
...cool and comfortable...
Hope all is well!
