The good old days...

back in the good old days
even everyday objects
looked like little treasures

my friend has still the pincushion 
her grandmother used fifty years ago
(and a long time ago it was used by her great grandmother)
for my birthday she gave me 
those precious envelopes with sewing needles 
safety pins and a package with old bobbins

not that I wish I would live 
back in the days when our grandmothers 
had to do the laundry in the bathtub
(it was anything else but romantic)

but back then 
such everyday objects were treated 
like little treasures
