I see you Lucy!
Lucy thinks it's Friday Hide-n-Seek.
No Lucy, I'm trying to get some pictures of my Friday Find to share!
This week I just had to show you this beautiful, old spool cabinet I
found at an antique shop just down the street from me.
I've always wanted a spool cabinet, and I was so excited to find one
in such nice condition!
The only thing is that the J. and P. Coats
is on the back, so you can't
see that from where I have it right now.
I understand that this cabinet is from the early 1900's
and the drawer knobs are not original, however,
I think it was really well done. Besides, this is not something I bought
for it's value. I just love vintage sewing notions because it reminds me of
my mom who sewed all the time.
Isn't the detail lovely on the side?
So, I'm using it to hold my embroidery thread,
and beading materials.
I think this doily looks perfect on top.
No, I didn't crochet this one,
but, I had some size 30 thread and thought I'd give the smaller
thread a try. I've been using the popular size 10 thread that you've seen
in my past posts.
So, I hope you've enjoyed my Friday Find this week and
now I'd better go see if I can "find" my Lucy!
Have a great weekend!
wonderful site you have!
I would have scooped that cabinet in a heartbeat - it's gorgeous!
And Lucy is so so cute, lovely capture !
Have a nice weekend,
lovely handwork - it seems like such a peaceful pastime
Abrazos y feliz fin de semana.
Your size 30 project looks beautiful so far! I just started a doily in size 20... I'm working my way up to trying the 30!
Have a fantastic weekend!
Enjoy your spooley cabinet thingy. It's so detailed and pretty!
Your little cabinet is a great find. I wish I was so organized. My supplies are a mess and all over the place. I will use this time, before we travel to the States July 23rd, to purge and toss and organize.
Have a great weekend. Tammy
Your picture of Lucy is adorable.
I also have a real affinity for old sewing notions - I love that connection to people in the past doing the same things as I do... continuity...
I love, love, love that photo of Lucy.
Happy Sunday to you, Becca!
