The coolest part in that container was this little box. I didn't expect I'd find these teeny tiny spools of silk thread. I love miniature everything. Antique miniature pools of thread. Awesome.

A little bit of vintage
My mother loves garage saleing. No really. Like every weekend garage saleing. Which is totally possible if you live in California. Which I don't. And that makes me mad. I've gotten some of my best deals at garage sales in California. Anyway, my mom sent a package to me with this old plastic box of wooden spools. At first I thought it was just your average thread. But when I opened it up, they were all spools of pure silk thread, gorgeous, and super soft. I don't know exactly what you do with silk thread. Anyone? I'd love to know.
