Things I Love Thursday - Vintage Goodies Edition

Vintage thread spools, that is.

These belonged to my great-aunt and now they belong to me.
My {non-existent} photography skills are really not doing these beauties justice but you'll just have to take my word for it: they are adorable.

And I love them. Spools of thread today just don't have the same cuteness factor, do they?

I haven't even mentioned the vintage buttons that came my way. Pinterest is overflowing with ideas for vintage buttons. I'm just not sure I can bring myself to do anything with mine. I rather like just looking at them and counting them and...

OK, I'm starting to sound a little {a lot} nuts.

Thanks to my Grandma for passing these little treasures along to me!

They look beautiful, btw. :)

Love those! I also love the buttons you sent me. I can't wait to make something worthy with them. Thanks for sending them!
