spools & tool box


i have had so much fun thrifting lately i can hardly contain myself! i can't wait until fridays so i can go rummage sale-ing for a few hours in the morning, or to the thrift stores on the weekend! i've had a lot of great finds lately so i'm going to feature two new items today.


i've collected old spools for quite awhile now. i have spools of all kinds. i just love the vibrant colors and simple beauty of them. i found all of these recently....some at a thrift store, some at a rummage sale. i think they were anywhere from 10 cents to 50 cents each.


here's a great old tool box i found over the 4th of july weekend. i just love the paint, or lack there of, and the tall, thin nature of it. it's quite a large piece....probably about 2 and a half feet wide, 6 inches deep and about 18 inches high.


the box was found at a rummage sale just down the street from where we live. i paid 6 whole dollars for it! quite a steal in my book!
