"Just a word recalls
Sewing notions long since used:
This is a cloth /mixed media collage with stitching, complete with its own haberdashery - press studs, some of the packaging and a safety pin
I was so excited to find the cards of hooks and eyes and to see the range I had kept and their age.... one of the cards boasts by appointment to Queen Mary, and the others by appointment to Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. My vague memory is of purchasing at least the oldest card in a general store in a small town in the 1970's - I remember it was "discounted old stock" but I can't remember how much I paid! Thanks Tag Tuesday for this vintage rediscovery.
