J and I enjoy visiting antique and vendor malls on the weekends. We enjoy browsing whether we find a treasure or not. So Saturday we set out to visit a “new-to-us” shop. This may be my new favorite spot. And, of course, I found a few things to add to my collections and thought I’d share.
I bought the vintage pattern to use in my art journaling. The ceramic pot was just too cute and had to come home with me.
And I added two spools/bobbins to my collection. It was the size that drew me to the one in front. It’s 5 inches tall; the smallest I have. The shape and holes in the other intrigued me. I’m looking for a good resource to learn more about the types of old spools and bobbins, the age, the uses, etc. If you’re a collector (or not), do have any book or web site recommendations? I’d appreciate the help.
The sun is shining this morning and the light in the craft room is lovely. I think I’ll spend a little time in my journals before I have to stop to fix lunch. Enjoy your day!
