The Vintage Sewing Box

I would love to tell you about a gift I received from hubby this past Christmas.  It's a wonderful vintage sewing box.  I just think it's so cute and I can't wait to start using it for my crafty creations. From what I have been able to determine, it is a 1950's to 1960's Danish sewing box.  Has anyone else seen one of these before and know the history of it?  I am interested in knowing more about it.  I just love vintage and antique items, especially the wooden ones.  It is definitely a weakness of mine.

I am hoping to get back to crafting shortly.  I had more or less stepped away from it for a few years but am just itching to get back at it.  I did make some crafts this past Fall which was so enjoyable. The hardest part is getting started.  Once that happens I have problems stopping (or sleeping, lol, with all the ideas running through my mind).  At this point I am seriously considering setting up an Etsy shop but am still researching it at this point.  Stay tuned...







These are just some of the crafts that I have been working on in the last while.





My helper is at it again.


Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your time as much as I did.

  1. Hi Kelly, just popped over from Stephanie's blog. The sewing box is just divine! I could so easily fill this up with all manner of crafts and sit there with it to my heart's content. Great to meet you. Chel xx

  2. Hi there! I'm visiting from The Enchanting Rose and wanted to stop in and welcome you to blogland. :) Love, love your vintage sewing box! It's such a beautiful treasure, and I like how the drawers pivot out for a good view of the contents. I have one of similar style, American made though, that I am looking forward to putting into service, too. Love the primitive pillows, also.
    Have a lovely week!

  8. Oh, how thankful I am to welcome you to the blogging world, dear Kelly! I am visiting from sweet Stephanie's blog, "Enchanting Rose". Through God's providence, I "met" both Stephanie and her precious mother, Debbie, this past year, and they have both become SO dear to my heart! How ecstatic I was to find that you love primitives!!!!! Oh, my! They are my favorite way of decorating! I LOVE old things! Their history, the way they have stood the test of time, the stories they could tell, if only they could speak! I love your sewing box and wish I could shed some light on it, but alas, I cannot! I so look forward to following along with you and seeing what wonderful crafts you create. I love the things you made here. I can see that we will definitely be friends, and I pray God blesses you on this blogging journey. A big WELCOME to you!!!!!

  11. Oh, I sure miss country décor. My sister's house was filled with it, and still loves it today. I'm coming over from dear Stephanie's blog. This vintage sewing box is a treasure. I thought of my mom when I saw it, as she used to make all my clothes growing up.

    Welcome to the blog world, and I'll be back to check out some of your current posts again.

    I'm visiting from Stephanie's blog and she has mentioned to me she had a Canadian relative, can't recall which province you are in though. Welcome to blogland.

  14. Good afternoon, Aunt Kelly! I just love seeing pictures of your helper - such a cutie pie!

    Your vintage sewing box is oh-so-lovely! What a joy for you to have found it and I know it will come in handy with your sewing and crafting. Speaking of crafts, I just LOVE your creations. The bottle is stunning with the twine and lace. And the pillows are ever so sweet.

    I mentioned you and your lovely blog on my post today and I am so happy to see you've had some visitors. Blogging friends are truly THE BEST and I know these women will be a blessing to you as they have blessed me. Love to you!

  15. Hi Kelly! I'm here visiting you from Stephanie's blog... and I'm very happy to meet you! Your vintage sewing box looks really unique, and useful too! I like that it has legs to make it a bit taller, and that the drawers swing out! And I love all your creations, especially your pillows, just beautiful! Talent runs strong in your family I think :) Much love to you, and look forward to getting to know you better in "blogland"! :)

  17. What a neat sewing box! Love the compartments to help keep things neat. I take the divide and conquer approach to messes. I can't get rid of everything, but I can divide and separate until my drawers no longer seem like a mess! You decorated it nicely--even the cat sort of matches the rug under the sewing box. Welcome to the blogging world...visiting from Stephanie's blog!

  20. Hello Kelly, I found out about your blog from Stephanie and wanted to say "Hi". I'm Sandra and am Canadian too (I live in Ontario). I am very blessed to be friends with both Stephanie and her mom, Debbie and am so happy to meet another member of the family. :)

    I've enjoyed a glimpse into your life and seeing a few photos of your beautiful home and land. Your kitty is so cute and is that a penny rug I see? Did you make it? I would love to make one of these so your photo caught my eye.

    Welcome to the blogging world! Looking forward to visiting you again.

  23. This is a wonderful gift for a crafter. It certainly looks 50's/60's style but that's all I could say about it, so no help to you there.
    Happy blogging.
