On another collection note, I love buying ribbons and braiding and have accumulated quite a stash over the last six months or so, meaning to use them for wrapping gifts, sewing onto projects etc. But have I? - No. The collection is mounting but I just love the look of them and keep them in this lovely old apothecary jar.
I have also been on the look out for some of those vintage wooden bobbins and have been scouring the internet and vintage shops. It's taken a while but I now have a little collection of those too.
Aren't they gorgeous? These came with the ribbons already on them.
These arrived yesterday which I'd ordered on the internet and wrapped some
of my existing tape around them
So now I have several methods of storing them
But then, I remembered something that was hidden away in our loft - Yes another trip for Hubby - but he was going up there anyway to get the Christmas decorations down
A bit battered but it is at least 70 years old and belonged to my late father-in-law
But - an idea was festering and after lining it with some Cath Kidston
fat quarters, turned my vintage case into yet another storage solution and am really
pleased with the effect
Well I did have another photo to show you but I've just had a pop-up message from Blogger to say OOPS YOU'VE JUST RUN OUT OF PHOTO STORAGE SPACE.
Grrrrrr ....How frustrating is that!!!
Anyway once it's sorted there is something else I want to show you that came down
from the dreaded loft and all being well, I'll write a post this week.
Have a good week everyone
