Nanna’s “Rubbish”

Yesterday I visited my Nanna and Pop which was nice. Nanna had decided she had some ‘rubbish’ to clean out and thought I might want some of it given it’s craft stuff.

I haven’t sorted any of it yet, but here’s a sneak peek!

A bag of laces, some are really old….


Lots of braids and ribbons….


Spool or cotton – some are on wooden spools…


Fabrics (the top two came from my Great Aunt who I also visited)….


and lots of books…


Plus more!

The other craft books are mainly knitted toys, dolls clothes and smocking books. They’re full of patterns from the toys she made for us when we were kids!

When I left Nanna’s the last thing she called out was ‘thanks for taking all my rubbish!’

    I have a feeling that ‘rubbish’ will not be seeing a garbage bag for a very long time ;) Cherrie

    Well, you certainly arrived in the nick of time! Imagine if you’d learned that it had been put in the rubbish!!
