The Sewing Box
By now, we should all have one of these:
Ideally revealing most of this: needles and cottons never used and rusty pins in a pretty box.
As you know, you can get more groovy sewing boxes than this one, but this belonged to my Mum. It reminds me of my childhood, where these were standard, complete with a battered button tin.
This can also be the lifesaver that darns tights and socks, and turns up hems. This is where you really can sit on your arse, while your finger is on the hub of your home.
The Rescue Kit
We should all have one of these babies. Emergency needle and thread, nail files, safety pins, the lot. (That white thing poking out is a pair of paper knickers). Ideally carry this around in your bag for all those little mishaps. Only don’t keep leaving it at home (like I do).
By The Door Kit
Ah, this one really is a good friend. Keep a pretty box or jar by your front door, on the telephone table. Tissues, lipstick, make-up brushes for those little touch-ups before you go out the door to take on the world.
Isn’t he cute? No longer connected, I’m afraid.
The Spray Kit
The simplest and cheapest of all. With water and a little fairy liquid inside, this gem is perfect for cleaning glasses on the spot, (most of us are wearing them now), and for cleaning make up brushes. Just a little spray, then a rinse under the tap. A great bargain from all chemists that packs a real punch.
Now, perhaps we should look at our wardrobes
…….or perhaps not.
Oh, mercy me, is that the time?? Perhaps this should be tackled in the next episode – Capsule Wardrobes – for or against?
Same time, same channel………
