treasure hunting *

My mom and I had a nice weekend of junk store rummaging and estate sale hopping, but we sure do miss my sweet dad. He always loved to see our little discoveries. I found these iron pieces at an estate sale, and mom gave me this obviously much needed spool holder.
Speaking of treasure hunting, I was recently reminded of my all time favorite Antiques Roadshow moment with ol' Mr. Ugly the clock. Someday I'll make this kind of find... you'll see.

  1. Spool holders are one of those great things in life that are both beautiful AND practical. My grandmother recently gave me hers, and since Adam is the seamster in our family, I love looking at the colorful threads dutifully waiting for their next project.
