I just recently visited the Edward Gorey House in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. One of the things that impressed me in the house was a spool rack that Mr. Gorey used to hold his necklaces. He was quite Mod in his fashion sense and had many necklaces and he kept them on an Antique Spool Rack.
I was inspired. I hope to find an antique spool rack one day, but until then. I happened upon a rack at JoAnn's Fabrics yesterday and decided to give the whole concept a try first. Here is a spool rack being used for it's intended purpose.
