A "Coats and Clark" box filled with these tiny spools of thread and a pair of scissors! The box is set up like a jewelry box! It has a spring hinge top. Nothing like the ugly plastic containers they come in now. Which when you try to open almost always lead to cuts on your fingers!
Here is one of the drawers, after I cleaned out the dust and stuff that comes with time. If I'm not mistaken, the wooden things in the back of the drawer were for making or darning socks. There is a metal rod which attaches to both sides of the drawer. As you can see it has 4 small spools on it! So cute! and practical! The dark green box is the "coats and clark" box I just showed you, in the above photo.
Here is a view from the top of the cabinet so you can see the side storage cubbies!
Tah Dah! Here is what it looks like from the front. There also were some fun looking needle cases, which I didn't get a picture of. Some old zippers, buttons and a glass container full of all sorts of pins and needles of various sizes. A needle persons treasure box!
Hope everyone is enjoying there summer! :0)
