Scissors and Cutters

Hi there!
    Today I want to share with you our collection of scissors.
A couple of months ago I bought my new favorite little stork scissors (it's not that little) that is mostly for embroidery. And then I realized we do have lots of scissors and for different reasons in my house.

   The truth is that we have an affair with the scissors that goes way back in time. Since my grandpa was a barber and my grandma a custom dressier, they both used scissors in their daily routine; and now we do too! And of course as true old-stuff-suckers we have a nice and neat collections of scissors! I want you to note that I didn't add in this collection: kitchen scissors, a couple of other well sharped tailoring scissors, pruning shears, and other types of shears that we proudly own! hahaha enjoy!

The other day, a good friend gave me three old photographer's cutters and with that addition I believe my collection is heading to completion with success!

I really love the wavy pinking edge of that last cutter, which was used for the old-school wavy edges on photos. I've always wanted one like this, too pity that the head of the cutter is missing. Of course that means that I am on a mission to find a new one!
