Trims and Ribbon abound

We had a wonderful weekend visiting my parents in Central Washington. Mom and I did a little shopping for fabric and trims. The real fun though was raiding her craft closet- so many beautiful kinds of lace and interesting ribbons ( Thanks Mom!!). Today I found a jar of old wooden spools to start getting all these lovely treasures organized.

Here are some of the old and new.

I must admit,this wasn't my genius idea...I saw it at a quilt shop here...then I went back to the antique where I saw that jar of spools months ago. :0)
