Spectacular spool.

There's something about old timber that is so very enticing! I can't help but wanting to touch old timber things, they have such a rich, tactile surface. I'm a big fan of anything a bit old, unusual and a little bit neglected, and I also am a fan of grouping similar objects in little clusters all over the place. It's a thing, I can't help it.

I bought this darling old wire spool at the markets a while back and have it sitting on the book shelf with a bunch of random other spools and spindles that I have collected around the traps. I really like that fact that its label is still intact too, something so unusual in items like this.

Another thing that really appeals to me is the very visible grain in the timber, it creates such a whimical and soothing rhythm in the piece. It also works well as a kind of plinth for some of my smaller spools. One day I'll take a photo of the whole collection, but I don't think it's really ready yet.
