Making The Cut

Lately scissors have been catching my eye. Vintage scissors, bonsai scissors, embroidery scissors... I decided to gather some for your viewing pleasure. Above, large metal shears from SleepyOwlVintage. Below, vintage pinking shears from NicedaySupplies. Vintage stork scissors, bluebirdsales. Stork embroidery scissors, YorkshirePuddYarns. Red wicker handled scissors, Vintage925.
Victorian sewing or embroidery scissors, from reminiscetreasures.
Funretro's red scissors.
Gold crane scissors, caroline1236.
Folding pocket scissors, BurnsvilleMN. FBvintage's snazzy scissors. Trampoline has this collection of vintage wire cutters. Bezel shears, theurbanbeader.
Microsnip from minordtails.
Handforged snips from AliceInStitchesArts.
Reproduction embroidery scissors, cheswickcompany. And who isn't charmed by this old fashioned string, spool, and scissors set from nothingelegant?
Happy weekend! I'll be thinking of all the things I could be cutting!
