Treasure Hunting

I have been helping a friend clear out her uncle and aunt’s house and in the process stumbled across a couple of visibly repaired gems that I thought I’d share with you.

First up is this beautiful lace/crochet glove carefully repaired with blue thread. This would be less remarkable if it wasn’t for the fact that this lady had at least 50 pairs of gloves (seriously, I have never seen so many gloves in one place!), including about 7 or 8 pairs of lace/crochet ones, yet still felt that this glove was worth taking the time and care to mend. Hats off to her. (She also had about 50 hats.)

My favourite though is this adorable mint green plastic watering can repaired with blue electrician’s tape. Fab.
