Welcome to VTT, sponsored by my friend Suzanne. Today, I'm taking an easy route and posting a picture of my wooden spools of thread.
When I bought my treadle machine, one of the drawers had at least a dozen small, wooden spools of thread in beautiful colors. No way was I going to throw those gems out. I'd been seeing baggies of spools in antique stores for lots of dollars. It didn't take me long to decide to display them in this old jar. But, I wanted the jar to be full, so I was planning to go ahead and spend the money and buy one of those baggies full next time I saw one. Then, when we were in a thrift store, I saw a box of empty wooden spools. I picked out a half dozen to go with my other purchases and when I was checking out, the lady mentioned that there was a whole box of them. I told her I saw them, but they weren't marked and I didn't want accidentally spend a lot of money. She said she'd sell me the whole box for fifty cents, and of course, I went and got it. I still have half that box with big spools in it. Haven't decided what to do with them yet, but I'm sure they'll show up sometime in a VTT post.
Hope you all are having a great day. I'm back at the office, with just a little coughing. Head on over to Suzanne's blog to see her pink rose items and everyone else's links. Lane
