{A current obsession} vintage haberdashery

If you follow me on Pinterest you may have noticed that I have been ‘pinning’ away images of vintage sewing supplies.

I just bought some vintage cotton reels like this on trademe – I just love the wooden reels and there is just something beautiful about those rustic labels.

Isn’t vintage ribbon on wooden spools beautiful? I blame my sister for starting this obsession, (she bought me the roll you see in this post.)

I would really love some velvet ribbon! Isn’t it sweet?

Do you have any current obsessions?

I'm a sucker for vintage cotton reels too. Especially the names that each colour has.
Following from the vintage wooden ephemera, I am rapidly developing a soft spot for wooden yardsticks and rulers.

It is a real find to come across those beauties.....
