One of the many things I like are vintage pincushions. I'm a sucker for cheap tomatoes or strawberries. I don't like to pay more then $3.00, depending on size. One of my favorites is a large velvet strawberry I picked up a few years back.
I also have enjoyed making them. I love to use vintage fabrics, rhinestone buttons etc... I add a couple of teaspoons of lavender in them as well for a yummy smell.
This week-end my #1 found a wonderful pincushion for me. While at an estate sale he was looking through boxes in a closet and came across this beautiful chalkware pincushion. Boy, is he getting good! I love everything about her. She belonged to an elderly lady who enjoyed sewing. Her daughter who was probably in her fifties remembers seeing her mother use it. She only wanted a couple bucks for it. I knew what a treasure I had and gave her a little more. Now she proudly displays on a shelf, her pin poking days are over! I think she's pretty happy!
Talk to you later!
