Where Was It? What Was It?

What is that?
This has been stored at my parents
'Farm' for years
It was very dusty, took me 2 hours
just to get the
first film of sediment off
a lot of elbow grease and
some Swedish oil...
and we have.....
The new Ribbon Rack

In its original life
it was a string holder
to be used with a Weavers Loom
You can still see the bit
 of string on one spool
In its new life,
 it is going to be my fantastic
new ribbon holder.
It is really quite tall and
I am very excited to have
 this antique
Thanks Mom!!!
I will treasure it always

P.S. she has offered me
the loom too...
Hmmm...I am plotting,
 it is a large piece...

This is pretty much perfect hey? Only in one's wildest dreams would one have this as a ribbon holder. This is very inspiring; as you see the colors, textures, variety of what is hung there, I bet ideas will spring into action. *smiles* Norma
