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. :-)

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • Choose love. Thank you all for the love on my previous post. Grief is an awful thing that each and every one of us go through. I'm so thankful for this amazing community of wonderful people. I know I haven't been very present on it lately (or probably too present to some of you), but much has changed and I'm trying to focus more on "real life" as opposed to these beautiful, tiny squares that offer us snippets into other worlds. That's not to say that I find @Instagram any less important! I still consider it to be a vital part of social media and love it to death. I'm merely going through personal stuff. I plan to return to posting daily once things have settled down over here. Until then, keep showing me photographs of your lives. I cherish such views. (Here's a picture from last week's engagement session.)
