Did you know that the first thimbles in England were called "thumb bells" because they were worn on the thumb and shaped like a bell? The shape eventually changed, but the name softened into "thimble." And did you know that a person who collects thimbles is known as a digitabulist? No?? Me neither. :)
Computer search engines are turning me into a real-life Cliff Clavin. :-D Remember "Cheers"? Such a funny show, and good old Cliff was a storehouse of trivia. There was one episode where Cliff was selected to be a contestant on "Jeopardy"; it was just hilarious. My husband and I still laugh about it all these years later.
I thought I would show you the rest of my little treasures from yesterday's post.
