Mom and I took a roundabout way home heading from Yellow Springs, Ohio to the outskirts of St. Louis, Missouri. It wasn't exactly "on the way", but it was oh so worth it!
Mom and I wanted to stop at Calico Moon.
We had been there once before and loved it. You can read about it here.
Unfortunately, they are in the process of closing their store,
so we wanted to be sure and visit one more time.
Mom found this wonderful lamp and a nice piece of wool.
While I brought home these lovely quilt samples.
I think that they may be designs by Bonnie Sullivan.
I love the bees!
And look at the wonderful shamrocks quilted in the corners.
But my coveted treasure is below:
Isn't it gorgeous! My very first spool cabinet!
I love the details on the sides.
When cleaning it up, I found some cardboard lining the bottom of the drawer.
When I gently pulled it up and turned it over I found this:
So precious! And the colors are still so vibrant. I put it back in the drawer,
but right side up so I can enjoy it.
Both drawers were filled with treasures.
I'm not sure if the thread is original to the cabinet, but it is all Coats thread, so it will stay where it is :)
Scissors, hoops, buttons and needles were also among the treasures.
It is right at home on top of a low bookcase.
I thought I might store my rustic moire wool thread or my overdyed floss in the cabinet,
but I hate to disturb the antiques that it came with.
So I guess I will leave it as is for now...
What an amazing trip! Thank you so much for being patient with me and following along.
My next post will be for the little giveaway, you won't have to wait too long!
