found: souvenir needle book
Is it just me, or did souvenirs used to be a lot nicer and a lot more useful? Take this needle book for example. I found this in the drawer of my grandma's sewing machine, which I've been through many times before, but only just spotted my new old treasure.
The stamped leather cover has fantastic lettering, and will certainly stop the "needles and pins" from poking through. But of course, what makes this a souvenir over just your standard needle book is that it's from Niagara Falls. How great is that? I don't recall ever seeing something like this on any of my trips and stops at tourist shops. Or maybe I just wasn't looking?
I now invite you to take a closer look, then come back tomorrow to make your own needle book inspired by my find.
PS: If you look closely, you can see the price written inside the front cover. I'm pretty sure it was 25 cents. Nice.
PPS: Even non-reading books count for book month, right?
