Both images are vintage treasures! The 1st image is of some antique post cards about 100 years old. They’re topped with lavender and tied with string! They are messages from the past… a glimpse into the lives of people who lived in a very different world.
The second image is a vintage cotton reel (spool) from my mother’s sewing box. It’s well over 50 years old – they don’t make them like this any more!
