I snapped a photo of them right away. Then I brought them home, and snapped another photo.
It seems, I couldn't stop snapping photos of them. I love the graphics, and the beautiful blue thread.
I love them so much that I painted a terracotta bowl to display them in,
They are on my chest of drawers. I tilted the bowl, so the bobbins are spilling out onto my vintage crocheted runner.
Is this a vignette? I think so. Simple, and something that makes me smile every time I look at it.

Rosemary, what a beautiful vignette!! The bowl is gorgeous!!ReplyDelete
HOw big are those bobbins? They looked huge in the first pic, but are the sewing machine bobbins? So interesting~and I do think it qualifies as a vignette!ReplyDelete
Sooo viele schöne Dinge gibt es bei Dir zusehen. Ich habe Dich eben beim Stöbern gefunden und freu mich wieder eine Kreative im Bloggerland entdeckt zu haben. Gerne guck ich wieder bei Dir rein. Vielleicht klickst Du mal rüber, ich würd mich freuen.ReplyDelete
a lovely find and gorgeous photos! love the muted tones.ReplyDelete
I think you are very clever to make a vignette of out something like bobbins. They are such a pretty shade of blue/gray and look perfect spilling out of the bowl. Have a great day! PamelaReplyDelete
Really, the simplicity makes this a definitely stunning vignette!ReplyDelete
Simple and elegant vignette, I like it.ReplyDelete
I see the attraction, and you've displayed them so nicely in your painted terracotta bowl.ReplyDelete
To find one bobbin would be a treat, but to have all those is just so lovely. The graphics and industrial nature of them..ahhh, just so very pretty in your lovely photos.ReplyDelete
What a fabulous find and I really like how you have them displayed. It's definitely a vignette!!ReplyDelete
Yes, that is a vignette, and a cute one at that!ReplyDelete
Definitely a vignette and I love it.ReplyDelete
I can see why you like it. It's very pretty all massed together like that.ReplyDelete
I can see why you were so instantly smitten with them...they are fabulous! Love that beautiful blue color of thread :o)ReplyDelete
I love it...it is charming and simple, pure and honest. I love the fact that they are blue and tumble out onto your crocheted runner. Very sweet!ReplyDelete
Funny how some common things as thread can be so beautiful...combined with more beautiful items..then truly a "vignette"..ReplyDelete
It's a fabulous vignette! I love the colors and the textures in this composition. Certainly makes me smile.ReplyDelete
I absolutely love your style - you are inspirational. In fact I'd never heard of gesso paint but I bought some this week to try. I have a couple of pieces in mind - just small things. I live in Canada but if I was closer I'd be at your market every week. Bless you.ReplyDelete
Are you going to be at Kane this weekend? If so, let nme know where. I'm probably going to go after my boys finish up basketball in the early afternoon. andrea@townandprairieReplyDelete
I agree. I love these little bobbins, too.ReplyDelete
Love the vignette!
Thanks for sharing.
You find the neatest things, Rosemary! Thank you for sharing your treasures at Potpourri Friday at 2805!ReplyDelete
A very lovely and serene vignette. I like the color of the bobbin threads...I think that's the serene part for me. I love that you painted the terracotta bowl and spilled the bobbins out on the crocheted beauty.ReplyDelete
Oh Rosemary, that is a wonderful vignette~ love the display you created! you are a lucky lady to have such a find!ReplyDelete
I would have been smitten with them too!ReplyDelete
Great little lettering and the gray blues? So Villabarnes!
Your lovely painted bowl/urn and the little fellows spilling out... perfection!
Thanks so much for sharing and for linking up Rosemary!
I can definitely see why you like these - they are amazing to look at! What a great find!ReplyDelete
I would love to have you share this at my themed link party for rustic, recycled or shabby chic projects and decor - http://rustic-crafts.com/?p=5878
Not only is it a vignette, It;s a beautiful vignette. I love vintage notions. The bobbins are beautiful on their own. Placing them in the bowl was perfect!ReplyDelete
