New York City Silver Thimble

This is my NYC Silver Thimble.  

I look for Thimbles everywhere I go.  Thimbles that fit my finger well.


Each drawer has a different silver pattern in it

Do I look happy?  Yes!

This is a picture taken the first day of our New York City 21 Birthday trip.
We walked by a tiny old Silver Shop which was packed full of old silver.

Cambridge is my pattern.

My Granddaughter is great. 
 She went in with me with a smile on her face and was totally patient waiting for me as I looked at everything!  It made the trip  extra fun for me.

And I found this Sterling Silver Thimble.  And it fits me. And it's pretty too.

I was in silver heaven.

Jeanne--Happy Mother's Day. I will get you some pictures of St. Michael's as soon as things settle down a bit (I'm getting my house painted). I LOVED the silver thimble and the silver shop--where is it? I missed that one. Enjoyed your visit to St. Michael's so much--now, we are getting wonderful, warm weather and it's really spring. I went to St. Michael's last night for an open sing--they did the Faure and the Rutter Requiems. So gorgeous and such fun to sing!!! When I get my house in order, I'll order some stuff!!! Happy Day!!! Love, Eleanor

What a beautiful thimble. I got a silver thimble once in a vintage kitchen utensil drawer contents I won on EBay. It fit me also. It was the best find in the drawer.
