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.

  • Early morning post (before I start painting our living room walls). We viewed our first acreage in four years last month. While the outside of the property was one hundred times more appealing than the interior, it’s inspired us to see more. We’re country folk at heart- both being raised on farms and acreages. We probably will not stop until we find that piece of prairie land that whispers our names. 🌾💛 Happy birthday, husband. I’m sorry that your birthday doesn’t always go as planned. Also, transitioning from you being gone for weeks, to then being home for a few hours, only to leave again is anything but smooth at first. But know that Remy and I do love and appreciate you so much. I hope that you have a wonderful year (since we’ll probably be spending much of it apart), wherever you now are.
