~ Simple Country Gatherings ~

Welcome dear friends to the last
week of January....only two weeks until 
Valentine's Day!

My thoughts turned to a nice warm summer's day 
as I gathered together red tomatoes to share....

This variety is known as the wonderful Sewing Tomato 
and two old silk apples.

I always keep my eyes open for tomatoes
while fun to find a very special one! 


For those of you who collect the "Simply Country" book 
series by Judy Condon, the newest one is out....

~ Simply Country Homes & Gardens ~
Softcover, 144 pages, 2014

Here is a little glimpse of the content...

Fun garden ideas, love the bee skep and little rabbits on 
the upper left page.

Love, love this old bed, quilt and rug!

Lovely handwork featured in this home!

I would love to have a sunny room with lots of windows...maybe

If you look real close, the couch on the upper left page has
a great rug hooked sheep pillow.

Judy Condon's next book titled "Little Bit of Country", 
will be available in March  2015.


For this week's Ebay auctions, I've selected the 
next three sewing items....

Wonderful antique 8 spindle thread stand with original
gold velvet pincushion.  Circa 1930.

Also included, are the 
eight old spools of thread. 

These are very hard to find in antique shops these days
and this one is in good used antique condition.

Item number two....

This long necked swan thread holder is so sweet!
The swan is attached to the lower tray making it one piece.

Comes with the thimble.
This piece is heavy, solid metal (not sure what kind).
Nickel plated or silver plated.
I have not polished it.

What a great punch needle thread holder for those 
lovely overdyed balls of Valdani!


Item number three....

Old two piece sewing trinket basket.

Measures 4" in diameter by 3" high.  If you include the tall
handle it is 6" high.

Nicely woven and good and bad smells!

Would make a nice little snippets basket.

These 3 items will be listed as 7 day Ebay auctions
later tonight and will end Monday night, February 2nd.

If you are interested just click onto the Ebay link provided,
and ZAP it will take you directly to my Ebay Store....
