Oh my, what I can't do with an old drawer, vintage sewing supplies and a bottle of modge podge.  I will admit I can't sew, but it doesn't stop me from repurposing an otherwise boring drawer.

I have a library book out at the moment entitled "boxframe magic" by Lizzie O'Prey with Helen Atkinson. The antique teddy bear display would be perfect in an old drawer.... I would much rather re-use something than to make it from new! Books like this give junkaholics lots of ideas. Posted: 11:57 pm on October 6th

This would make such a great gift for a sewing enthusiast. I look at it, and it reminds me of my grandmother. (Sewing was her hobby and passion.) Thank you for sharing; it made me smile. Posted: 2:25 pm on January 3rd
