Organized my thread stash and hoped for more old wooden spools...

I decided to go through my sewing boxes and organize.  My friend had given me a pretty sewing box a couple of months ago and I finally filled it today.  I was hoping to find some old wooden spools with thread still on them.  I had a big plastic bucket full of thread and had to untangle the mess.  Well, when all was divided into colors, I ended up with lots of pretty colors, whites, creams, and only a few wooden spools!

Here's my wooden spools!  Not exactly what I was hoping for... 


But at least I now have organized threadI decided to put them in my plastic drawers and I think they look nice and colorful.  That is where I will have them for now anywayI love organizing!!

I try, God knows I try! Buttons... love, love, love them. I just got a jar full at Goodwill for $2.50 and I have enjoyed them more than the cost!
Blessings to you,
