I remember using these.
If you're old enough
you know them as Spoolies.
They were newest and best way to
curl your hair in the 50's and 60's.
No more pin curls with bobbin pins
or sleeping on brush rollers.
They were ingenious, flexible, and
comfortable to sleep in.
They definitely made your
hair very curly.
And yes, I used them.
I was a Spoolie girl.
Today, I guess I'm still a spoolie girl,
only in another way.
About 20+ years ago I went to
a sale and bought this wonderful old
I've kept it in my sewing room ever since.
A box is meant for storing things in it,
and I had the perfect idea.
Each time I emptied a spool of thread I
tossed the spool into the box.
Slowly over the years the box has been filling up
with a wide variety of empty spools.
This year I decided to wait until the end of the year
to see exactly how many spools
I emptied in 2015.
It was a very good sewing year.
So I guess I'll continue being a spoolie girl
and see how many spools I can empty in 2016,
but I'll skip using them in my hair.
Until Next Time-
