( saved )

June 30, 2011

when i see a thing so carefully saved
i simply must rescue it.

at a recent estate sale, this sweet carter's box caught my eye.
it's a 1930's litho print, with an artist signature. darling. 

and tucked so carefully inside...
seven spools of crochet thread.
there was even a tiny pearl hat pin in one.

the colors, textures, and history make this set special.
but even more, i can almost see my grandmother's hands
folding back the paper to show me what's saved inside.
