Welcome!. I live in Oviedo, Florida with my handsome husband, two great kids and a pair of silly basset hounds. Oviedo is a little town where you can get a Barney’s coffee on one corner and have to wait for the chickens to cross on the next. I love to shop for vintage treasures to use in my home and artwork. Come along with me!
I did a post a few weeks ago about this little find. This is surgical gauze from the late 1800's packaged up in the cutest little box. I found it in a dealer's booth marked 50% off. I brought it home for a few dollars. The manufacturer is Seabury and Johnson. This is the company Robert Johnson owned prior to Johnson and Johnson. You can read about the history of this find and see more pics here.
In my prior post, I asked you if I should open this box. I was curious about the gauze inside. It could have been really fun to use in a piece of my artwork. I know you were curious too, but we all unanimously agreed it was best to leave the box in tact.
Well, I found myself in the same dealer's booth last weekend at the side walk sale. She had several more boxes of gauze and one already had the string seal broken. So, I purchased it and want to share the opened box with you!
That couldn't have worked out better! Hope you enjoyed seeing what was inside. Now, I get to use my latest find in my artwork and preserve the other unopened box. More finds to share, Fall decorating and some projects this week. Stay tuned! xoxo
