old stuff

weekend-001

A year or so ago, an old aunt of a friend died. When she was cleaning out the apartment, I got a few pieces of furniture, and a box of old sewing supplies. For some reason, I left the yellow box on my bookshelf for all this time just to rediscover it this past weekend.

I got a lot of lovely (teeny tiny for the most part) sewing needles, razorblades wrapped in printed tissue paper, old zippers, thread, various bits of lace and ribbon and pink boning.

tools

This is what I showed up at my door 2 days after mentioning to my father that I didn’t have the right tools to loosen a stubborn nut on my bike …

jam

Today, we made jam. The pretty translucent red one is chili jelly, the orange one is pumpkin jam with pear and lots of ginger.
