Anyway I moved a long table out from one wall and got the bakers rack painted white and got some of my jars on it . I have jars of white buttons all over my house and wanted to get them all in one spot. Still don't have them all downstairs yet.
Now I have been finding old wooden thread spools everywhere. I mean in jars and boxes in the studio so trying to get them all in one spot. Then sometimes I wonder why do I do this? I mean I love the stuff but I have entirely to much so need to let go of some of the studio stashes.
Also I have these salt dips which use to be placed at each persons place setting around the table they also had small spoons for each salt. I got these over several years of buying boxes of things at auctions. I always thought the old Victorian tables were so pretty set with the old dishes and glasses all crystal.
before bakers rack was painted ( I had this on once before )
Now filled with treasures in jars
I have lots more tubes all over the studio. some with beads and others just small treasures. some of you have seen these 1940-1950's colored buttons I have saved for years adding to them to this jar after each auction
Marie Antoinette and family on a shelf
I have jars of Bakelite buttons also and going to sell the dark ones. When I open my jars you can smell the Bakelite buttons they have a certain smell to them.
Some of these ladies belt buckles are Bakelite.
Then I have a black velvet ribbon I add my mother of pearl belt buckles to
Let me show you one more thing in the studio area. a set of lamps I just had to have once. I bought the bottoms in Independence Missouri at a shop and the shades in Portland Oregon
I know they are different colors but I liked them anyway.
