The Old Catalogue

I just  found a nostalgic treasure!

My mother was an excellent sewer.  Her sewing skills helped us survived for a living then.  I remember her  sitting in her old treadle sewing machine the whole day.   Because we had no money to buy new dresses,  she would  sew dresses for us out of remnants of cloth.

When I went home last  sem-brek,   I saw this in our old cabinet.  My sisters and I  were all surprised because we all thought that there’s nothing left  in my mother’s  stuff.  We felt like we traveled many years back  because this old catalogue  has become a  big part of our   life during our childhood years.  We have no magazine,  no story book to read,  no  TV,     no  indoor activity to do  that time and all we could do was to  peek   at  the pages of  this  book everyday.  At our very young age,  we would always look for our own models  and labeled them with our names in it.  That was hilarious but this catalogue brings back  a lot of  beautiful stories to keep.
