I just wanted to show you a few more of my makings and a little treasure of mine.
First of all here are a few new pincushions I have made. They were made last year some time from little trinkets and cups that I picked up on one of my weekend trips here in Ontario.
This pincushion was made from an old tarnished eggcup that I found at a market.
And this one is made from an old baby cup. For the center of the flower I used an old boot button.
I found this "vessel" in a second hand store. I am not even sure what it is, but I loved it because it was different.
I also like to make other things - not just pincushions. This sheep started off as a primitive creature. Coffee stained and baked with an old piece of tattered quilt on her back. I liked it but .... it wasn't right so I transformed her!
I just love the way she looks now! But, she is missing one little thing ...
She has a name tag around her neck but as you can see ... no name. If any of you lovely ladies of blog land have a nice name for her - please, drop me a line and let me know.
And last but not least (I really like that saying) .... my little treasure.
A pair of Victorian children's shoes.
These were a gift to me from my ten year old daughter Caylagh. She knows how much I love old things, especially when they are "as is" - old and worn. Aren't they just beautiful? I often wonder, if it was a little girl or maybe a little boy that used to run and play in them? If only they could tell their story. I find it amazing that these little leather shoes are over 100 years old and they have survived all these years to find a home with me.
I will be sharing more of my treasures in future posts.
Have a peaceful and creative day,
