7 years ago, our family of 7 moved to a small home on the prairie. Our goals were lofty - to live frugally, become more self reliant, grow as much of our food as we could (sourcing the rest locally), and in general, learn to live in a more sustainable way. In an exciting twist of life events, we recently moved "home" to the coast and are adapting our lives and goals to a completely different climate and landscape. Join us as we continue on our journey!

Vintage Thread Love
Have you ever handled vintage thread? My, my, my... such quality. Even the best shop brands pale in comparison to this lovely stuff... and the wooden spools?
I was given Grandma's sewing kit when she moved 2 years ago. She can't see well enough (at nearly 92!) plus she has us to mend for her now :)
Even the pins are better quality. Straight as an arrow, strong, sturdy and serviceable. Nothing at the shops comes even remotely close.
That's it - I'm on a quest for vintage sewing supplies... thrift shops, here I come!
