Mid~week Fix

Had to share with you my latest find ~ an ancient beautiful box and linen thread spools! Loved the graphics on both the box and the paper labels on the spools ~ I'm hoping I may be able to use the thread for some projects - maybe crocheted earrings?! I picked this up on my lunch break this week ~ now and then I feel like I need a pick me up, so I escape to the antique mall nearby and get myself in a little trouble. I also got a great midsize globe ~ I'll post on that later when I get a good photo. Not too much damage to my checkbook ~ a low calorie lunch too!

I love old spools of thread. The graphics on these are really wonderful. Sounds like my kind of lunch!
