A "couture" antique

Here are the objects I found last weekend, it was "couture"/sewing antiques.
I particularly like old taylor's dummies as I have already shown you here.
It is true that objects that belong to the past are the ones I prefer and this old dummy represents a kind of witness.

It was waiting for me somehow.
Further an impressive collection of old reels (cotton, linen and wool) whose colours are so subtle.

Just imagine how happy I was when I discovered all those shades !
I chose green, pink and some other natural shades.

Other surprises were waiting for me and they are coming for you soon.
