I must have the spring cleaning bug because I'm finally getting things straightened up and cleared out (watch out Goodwill!). As I was running around this morning, I was trying to think what to do with the little round table in my living room and it suddenly hit me. Actually I tripped over it on the way to the kitchen.
I had my beautiful antique wheel that didn't have a place to live. He was just getting moved from pillar to post. Was the base small enough to fit on the little round table?
Now I can! (and it can)
p.s. - Do you love the little vase with the double pointed knitting needles? It's a lovely little pot I bought from a potter at the Midwest Folk and Fiber Festival last year. So sweet. And the picture behind it that you can't see very well because I haven't hung it yet, is a photocopy of a page from a January 18, 1868 Harper's Bazaar magazine. It's a poem and illustration called, "The Stocking-Knitter." Since the wheel is probably at least that old, it seemed fitting to display them together.
