favorite fridays.

vintage cheese crate/spool holder.

i have a habit of taking objects and not using them for their intended purposes. stick around, and you will begin to see that. ;-)


on our previous blog, i posted a diy of an easy bobbin stand.

while it is very practical to have something like that if you only have a few spools, possessing any more than say, twenty, starts to create problem. (unless you have a gigantic picture frame!)

my collection of spools grew considerably when my mother-in-law found a vintage and wooden lot at their local store and purchased them for me. they were so interesting, so i knew that i had to display them. i searched around for a few weeks before i finally came across an antique cheese crate on urban outfitters website.


did you know that their online store has a category specifically for vintage treasures? you must check it out!

i especially love the crate because cheese has been my favorite food ever since i was a little girl.

combining design with nostalgia? a home run in my book. :-)
