Silver Pin Cushion


Well, I am back and well enough to begin to post again! Photo's are piling up as well as things I want to share with you all. So this is the first in what I hope will be many more. I am excited to begin sharing things I make as Christmas gifts for others. I hope to post "how to's" as well.

The first gift I have created is a pin cushion made in an old silver baby cup that I found in a parking lot! It is beautifully tarnished and dented with age. A lovely little flower I made, centered with a old rhinestone button, is the main focal point. I used a vintage rhinestone bracelet to trim around the rim, and assorted vintage pearls.

It has been on my heart, that I would like to give gifts made with love this year for Christmas. So this is a beginning.
