* treasured *

Each Wednesday I post about some sort of treasure I found during the past week. It might be thrifted or found on a walk or whispered in my ear or discovered on a dark shelf in the basement. Something. Anything that makes me feel lucky and thankful. It doesn't necessarily have to make its way home with me - it just has to be noticed. The idea is for it to cost very little and feel very big. After all, this isn't about acquiring new things; it is about paying better attention to the world around me.


If you discovered a treasure this week (a new friend, a snow fairy, a fancy dish at the thrift store, a birds nest) please do share it, as well as any links, in the comments section below.

My dear, lovely friend Ariana gave me these spools of silken thread as a winter solstice gift. I found them this week while I was dusting (read: clearing off heaps of tools and materials) my craft table.

What makes them triple special is that, two years ago, I saw crates of these while I was at the Bouckville Antique fair. I almost bought a handful, but then I went to find some water and the bathroom, and the next thing I knew I was lost in the old washing buckets tent. That is just how it goes at antique fairs. I did think about those bright spools of thread on the drive home, though, and I wished I had bought a few.

Thank you, Ariana, for just knowing. I imagine I'll be using this fiber for many, many moons.
