Actually this should be called "Lunchbox" Wednesday today. But it's serving the same purpose that all those delightful cigar boxes do - holding the stuff. In this case - thread spools. Some full, some empty, most vintage, a few not. I've found them at thrift stores, garage sales and swap meets, and even been gifted with some when people have cleaned out their mother's or grandmother's sewing boxes.
I love the colours of the thread, the satisfying feel of the turned wood in one's hand, and the great old graphics on the labels.
