i was so excited when my dad found my grandmother's thimbles and i knew exactly what i wanted to do with them. of course it took me 3 months to actually get around to doing it. my other grandmother has had some family thimbles framed in her house for as long as i can remember, so that's what i wanted to do with these.
i picked up a couple little shadow boxes at ikea but they were out of white, of course, so i pulled out the spray paint
after a couple (billion) coats paint, they were all bright and shiny
i cut out a couple pieces of scrapbook paper for the back
and hot glue the thimbles right on
and that's it!
it makes me think of all my grandmother's needlepoints every time i see it! good memories
