Waxers

I collect waxers.  You know, the ones for coating your thread so that it goes through the linen easier.

I got some goodies in the mail yesterday.  I have been wanting a couple of waxers that have been out for a while.  Since I was ordering some thread, I thought I would finally get them. In my mind I pictured small waxers about the size of a quarter.  I was so surprised when they arrived.  They are way bigger than I imagined.

They are still cute and I will add them to my collection.

Then I happened to run across a couple of waxers that I thought were just beautiful.  They are a lovely light teal color with lots of definition.  I'm not sure what size these are but they are beautiful.  I ordered them yesterday.  (Gable House Goodes)

I collect cookie molds too and I bet I could make some very nice waxers if I had some nice beeswax.  I got these molds a couple years ago and think they would make very cool waxers.

It is terribly cold here but the snow has stopped.

Have a lovely Saturday.

  1. Those waxers are quite pretty. You say you collect them, but do you actually use those lovely things?
