Wood and Metal Spool

*Thank you for your input about my blog yesterday.  I have made a couple of little changes.  I intend on working on the size issue as that seems to be something several of you commented about.  Just have to remember how to do it.  So that will take me a little longer.  My memory seems to be slipping away.*


I told you about my visit to the Cooper City Antique Mall in this post.  One of the treasures I came home with was this wood and metal spool.  
It so industrial, isn't it?  

I'm using it as a picture holder right now. So easy to put together.  Watch!
Ok, fine! I used the pliers just to make it look like something.  You could probably just squeeze it with your fingers to make it fit. :)  And I didn't have to spray paint it either.  Again, trying to look all technical.  Using an unpainted paperclip works too. (cheesy smile)

I also love where I'm displaying it but I'm not ready to show you just yet.  Here's a hint.

Stay tuned.

Looks like a good find! I have a feeling you are using it on a vintage sewing machine? Am I warm ;)

Karrie, I think I made the clue too easy. I should have zoomed in more. ;•)

I love it used as a picture holder, you are so creative girl! Is that a foot pedal of a sewing machine? Did they even have foot pedals?

very industrial and very cool! I have an old singer sewing machine like that too. I'm interested to see what you're doing.

Can't wait to see! I do love the idea of using different items to hold photos and not just a frame.

I have so many of the spools but I have and probably never would have photographed one. I love it! It takes someone who can see the most ordinary and turn it into something so inviting. I have taken half dolls and used spools as the the skirt. as to the sewing machine. I love industrial Chic
