I always wish I was more organized than I am. I showed this cabinet in a recent post and a friend from my guild and loyal blog follower, Lynne asked me if I would show you the inside.
I feel like you will be disappointed.
A little history......my sister-in-law Ann was visiting my in-laws in North Carolina. She found this in an antique shop, called my husband and said you have to get this for Kelly it will be perfect for her 40th birthday. She was so right, I loved it as soon as I laid eyes on it. I have 7 great sister-in-laws who do nice things like this!
The cabinet was originally used to hold embroidery floss. I have miscellaneous threads in here.
This holds my DMC thread. One year for Christmas I asked my husband to get me one of each color, not knowing there were this many! He bought every single one they had in the store.
This one holds more specialty threads that I don't use all that much any more, but you never know...
In here I have a bunch of new & old buttons, some antique buttons and Bakelite buttons. The ones in front all the way to the left came from my grandma Aggie's button box. There are some glass ones in there.
I occasionally do other crafts especially with grandchildren now. This is a perfect place to keep all those little things that have a tendency to get lost.
If I really can't find something and it is small it is usually in here, somewhere.
This weekend we had a mini getaway at Christine's. Her birthday is in January and this was her gift from me. She already has a spot for it picked out.
It was also Terry's birthday and she has always coveted this quilt. It was one of my favorites but I will make another one. She was very surprised and is hanging it in her studio.
This little painting is very inspirational to me......
and so are these eggs from the neighbors. What is inspiring you today?
