heaps of spools

Have you ever seen so many wooden spools? I found a few big bundles of them (needed for the tinsel spools) and decided to display them instead of stashing them somewhere out of view.

I think after my second cuppa, I'll take care of a few chores and errands, including filing my retail sales tax form online and going to the post office. Later today I'm visiting my friend Lorraine (This time I'll take pictures!) I think I'll bring her a happy and sweet surprise for an afternoon treat.

The family room is still a wreck...wires everywhere, displaced furniture, books and cds and movies stacked in boxes. And the hutch is still, as you may have predicted, on the floor. Rich has an ultimate game tonight so it will stay this way for at least another day.

The spool display is adorable in the little wheel barrel on top of your drum table. I love quirky things like this.
