lookie what I got!

I'm not a regular e-bayer, but every now & again, I check it out to look for something specific. Random looking will only lead to disaster with that many choices. Yesterday I was looking for vintage spools, and found this little gem!
I love textiles & love to sew, but I am still learning. My sewing machine is about as no-frills as they come, and because I haven't figured out tension, stitch lenghts & all those important things, my thread jams no fewer than 3 times per project.
But really, how cute is this vintage sewing box? And since I only have, like, 4 spools of thread, this should suit my needs for a while!

And my sweet mama brought this over last night. I have already read it cover to cover, and I'm sure I will be drawing lots of decorating inspiration from it.

I am a lucky, lucky girl.

Happy Thursday!

I love that sewing/spool box. What a great color too.
That book looks like one I would enjoy reading too.
