    I found this little treasure in a shop called Funky Junk in Groveland, CA. I love little pieces of the past and that works for me bc I don't have space for big pieces! Hope all are enjoying their summer and finding lots of treasures! mary

      Thank you jscott! I went to see the Sequoias and mountains of CA and found it to be even more spectacular than I'd ever imagined! Of course, I had to make time to step into a couple of my kind of shops. I found a shop with awesome handmade clothing made to replicate the Civil War period along with hats and many other items. I found a couple of great antique stores. I think my favorite was Funky Junk where I got this tiny needle case. 1. she had such a variety of stuff. 2. She was sucxh an upbeat and friendly woman. 3. she entertained us with her talking bird while we shopped!

      thanks for the love, Brunswick. Today I could not stop thinking about the two needle cases and needles I left in the I contacted the owner and they are on their way. I'll post when they arrive. One is wood and the other, metal. Both hold sets of needles rather than just one.
