True friends are hard to find, but I have one. Her name is Leah. Let me tell you a little about her. She is the type of person who will do anything for you. She is selfless and giving. She is always helping others. She has done a lot for me. See this beautiful pumpkin? She made it. She makes all kinds of pumpkins and sells them. But this pumpkin is special. It's one of her favorites. She was keeping it for herself because she loved it so much. One day I was at her house checking out all of her pumpkins and I saw this one. It was extraordinary! A pale peach color covered in vintage lace with a vintage spindle for a stem. I asked her where she had been hiding this beauty! She told me that was part of her private collection and she had no intention of selling it. She couldn't even get anymore of the lace to make another one. Wow! It was gorgeous! Well, on my birthday, guess what I got as part of my birthday gift? Yep! Her favorite vintage pumpkin. She didn't keep it for herself, she gave it to me instead. That's a true friend. 😭I hope I can be as good of a friend to her as she is to me. Oh, and I'll try and be a good friend and ask you to follow her so you can adore her beautiful pumpkins! @weepumpkins 🎃🍁🍂#truefriends#selfless#giving#vintage#pumpkin#spindle#lace#window#fall#mantel
Je l'avais repéré il y a plusieurs mois et comme il était dans la bibliographie du résumé donné par @apleinesmains à la suite de notre super atelier pour apprendre à filer... Et ben j'ai craqué !

One of my favorite furniture purchases so far has been this pair of matching Dacian Spindle Armchairs from @wayfair. I saw a similar chair while checking out some interior design blogs, fell in love with the unique style, and set off on a quest to find my own (after convincing Jay that they weren’t ugly). These beauties ended up being more sturdy and affordable than I expected. I love the design all the way down to the hammered nailhead detail. And their neutral tones makes them easy to dress up for holidays. Yes, I’ve gone a little overboard with Halloween decor this year - thanks @homegoods for enabling that. 😬
#inktober Day 17: Graceful. Fairies are very graceful and I imagine one of the virtues given by the 12 fairies invited to the party bestowed the gift of grace on Briar Rose. The story begins with the queen bathing and wishing for a child. Out comes a crab from the water and says lo you shall have a baby! They decide to have a party after the birth, but they only have 12 place settings so one fairy doesn't get an invite. Apparently they couldn't order another setting from the goldsmith, you would think they could, being rulers and all. .
After several weeks of bigger jobs I've been focussing on some of the little 'bits and bobs' jobs that need my attention, including a pair of Sapele sofa feet to match the original, an Oak trophy base, an Oak back board, Sapele Cricket ball base, a set of pegs and three (rather ugly) replacement spindles for a Windsor chair. Every little helps as they say.
جالبه! محور عقب این اتوبوس روزهای بهتر از این داشته است. یاتاقان های آن خراب شده و اصطکاک موجب جوش خوردن محور اسپیندل با یاتاقان شده است. راهکار مناسبی ارائه کنید که این مشکل دوباره اتفاق نیافتد.
I feel so blessed to live in the modern world at times. When people you have never even met reach out to you in your time of need. When my dad died I jumped right into figuring out what to do. Not because I wasn’t grieving but because I desperately needed something to do with myself. Everything took too much time and so I tried crocheting but my mind couldn’t keep track of the patterns. @thespinningsquid reached out and sent me this box of gorgeous fiber to spin. Something I find meditative and in my overwhelmed mind didn’t think to turn to. I haven’t gotten the time to really think about the finality of my dad’s passing yet. I’m considering choosing one of these to spin as a therapeutic outlet then use the yarn to make something for my dad’s ancestor altar with at least one of them. Thank you again Autumn!
And so it spins. This planet, this life, this wool. Each separate strand becomes intertwined. There will be imperfections, but that is okay. It will one day make something beautiful. Often times life may spin out of control and your constantly playing catch up- deadlines, health, work.... life. It's important to find time to set aside to be alone, to wander, and to learn. Face imperfection. And grow into the person you want to be. #handspinner#knitting#wilderness#yarn#spindle#wilderness#utah
