lace keeping

i cannot stop buying lace.
i buy them when i need to make crafty things, when i have something in mind to make,
and i buy them even when i don't have an immediate use of them.
i keep buying so many that keeping them nice and neat became a problem.

around the same time last year, i went through a big project::
took out all the lace, sorted them by color and width,
and placed them neatly into:
glass jars...


...  so that i can easily see the colors, patterns, which is quite handy when i need to decide which one to use...

and also wooden plates and cardboards to wrap the lace around....


i prefer these wooden plates (which i got from tokyo) to cardboards and jars...  
but i am not able to find them in HK.

if yen isn't so expensive, i would really want to visit tokyo again!
