Vintage Thingies Thursday 4

It is Thursday again and time for Vintage Thingies with the Apron lady Lisa. You can find the list of other blogs showing their vintage treasures by clicking the picture here:





I know this is my third post this week, but I wanted to share a treasure with you again. I also know that I hopefully wrote about trying to find the lid for my copper porridge kettle by showing the kettle here, like I luckily got the dustpan for my brush. Well, I can't do that and I don't need to. You see, I found the lid where I thought the kettle was, so no need for that operation. However, I can't show you the kettle with the lid because I couldn't find the kettle! I know I have it somewhere and I will show it someday.



When my sister P brought me the dustpan I showed last week, she had a bag full of things for me. I got the rest of her glass cake plates I used to borrow from her for bigger family events like I borrowed mine to her, because they are the same series Luna by Iittala; and several desert bowls as well. And then I got this big tin box:


Here you can see the signature of the designer Anita Wangel. The bottom of the box says ira Denmark.



Inside the box was a surprise: ribbons and tapes for every need.



The wide silk ribbons were meant to be used as belts, stiffened with bones like a corset.



I love the red-checkered bias tape but the green and blue striped bias tapes are my favourites as I remember such tapes from my childhood.



There was more in the box, but you all have seen bias tapes before. Satin ribbons didn't photograph so well either, so I'll just enjoy them by myself.


Next week I will not be joining this game, as I will be abroad on a fair with DH. You will find the links to all VTT blogs through The Apron Queen every week!

  2. What a neat thing to have. Love all the items tucked inside the box. My grandmother had tins like this. I sure wish I had them.

  4. What a wonderful treasure tin! It's great that your sister kept so many things.
    Your parcel went by air mail yesterday. I hope you like it.

    It's a relief to know that I'm not the only one who has to nail things down to know where they are.
