thread bits // vintage supplies that bring joy
This is an odd Thread Bits, since there's no sewing/thread officially involved, but that's more because of the photo that I just HAD to share. I hope you'll indulge me!
I keep seeing talk online about the KonMari method of clearing out the clutter. And anytime I hear talk of clearing out the clutter I become hopeful, because I have a lot of clutter. Seriously, a lot. If you're not familiar with the KonMari method, I've gathered that the heart of it is to keep only what truly brings you joy.
This is a great idea. Except for this...
I find joy in vintage boxes of gummed stars. And buttons. And bias tape. And tiny scraps of fabric. And an old sewing basket filled with random bits that belonged to my grandmother's cousin and came to me intact.
These things lead to much clutter, and yet they truly bring me joy. How could I possibly get rid of any of them?
The unfortunate part in all of this is that I have a lot of other things that easily fall into this category too. Not vintage, but cute and fun, and I become far too attached to them all.
What are the things that you could never part with?
