I saw an ad in a magazine that has spools of thread in a bubblegum machine. That got me thinking....I have one of those (or maybe more after all I am a die hard collector). I had fun collecting some old buttons and wooden spools of thread. Like I needed an excuse to go antiquing!!!! The hunt is the most fun. That definitely goes for fabric too. My husband just shakes his head in amazement when I come back from one of these hunts.
