wooden thread spools

During our little sewing project on the weekend, I found these darling old wooden thread spools. They're silk-look/pearl/luster cotton and were either made in Australia or England. Such treasures, don't you think?
I love their beautiful old labels and wispy little strands...
And their names... (how fabulous that my Mum once bought 'Fiesta Pink' and 'Heliotrope' thread for her sewing!)
And look at Mr Red Cinnamon - mm mmm!
