A Package on my Doorstep


Look what I found on my doorstep today.
Given to me by my lovely neighbor, Sharon, she knows I like vintage things.

 
 
The picture on the tin looks like the fifties or sixties?


This is the original label on the back.
I think Bycroft was a New Zealand company.


And inside, wonderful wooden cotton spools, buttons, thimbles and an enormous embroidered linen tea-towel. I think the tea-towel would make a terrific apron!
I love my new treasures!

Happy Stitching,
