This is another one of those thimbles where I could really use some lottery money or a trust fund. There are so many really lovely old thimbles, but my paycheck is usually frittered away on nonsense like food and shelter and healthcare. Oh, well. . . At least I have this picture to look at. I hope whoever won the auction got it because it is beautiful and not some stupid reason.
