Poppy Orange

I've been doing a bit of sewing lately and seem to be frustrated

trying to find needles and straight pins.

So I pulled out my old sewing box tucked under the cabinet

and discovered some charming vintage sewing paraphernalia...

using a bright orange Bahia Gold cigar box

I corralled all the needles into the box

then I created a color coordinated collage

with some of the gems on the lid for easy access.

I couldn't resist including the now-famous

orange handled scissors by Fiskars,

first introduced to the world in 1967,

they seemed a perfect fit !



  1. Your new sewing box is absolutely wonderful! I have a couple of old cigar boxes myself. I hope you won't mind if I borrow your idea!

    I found your blog through the Fiskateer mb, where Cheryl shared it with us and told us to take a look. I am so glad I did!

  2. Fabulous box Paulette - you definitely need to join the Fiskateers :o)
