Another garage find!

Remember the post a while back about Cindy's cabinet and all the neat things I use in my studio and shows that were found here and there?  I have something new, er, old to show you!

Today Steve spent some time in the garage cleaning things out - salt under the cars, tools from the storage space above the cars, stuff like that.  I poked around in there a little after chatting with a few neighbors, and I saw something I'd never seen before:

Do you see it?  No?  Let's zoom...

A little spool!  How neat is that?  I coaxed it down with a rake because even Steve isn't tall enough to reach up there.

It's really neat.  The ends are about 4.5" in diameter, and it's just over 3.5" tall.  It says "General Electric" on one end and "Please return" on the other.  Oops!  It's really old, though, so I'm going to keep it and hope they don't come after me.

I cleaned it up and put it on some tissue paper so it won't roll, and I draped my Simple Stitched Saucer bracelets on it to test:

It's a little too big around to fasten the bracelets (well, except for the ones sized to fit me), but I think it makes a great display.  I can't wait to put it on my table at Meet the Teachers on Wednesday.

  1. That spool is really cool for a display. Good luck at Meet the teachers!
