I just can't help myself when it comes to making pincushions. I am sure it is some sort of an addiction! (I just laughed out loud at myself).
Here is another one of my newest types of pincushion - the hidden treasure pincushion - sounds nice!
It is again a shaker which is big enough inside to hold and hide a little pincushion.
I am lucky enough to actually have a set of these, so I am sure another one is to follow this one. I have a lot of dark yellow pansies in my flower box, so I think that will be the next color theme.
These are the 'other halves' of my shakers. I thought you might like to see the 'before'. Unfortunately the shaker on the right is completely fused together and I don't know if I will be able to use it other than as a decoration of some sort.
And last but not least ...
I actually went to the 'antique store' yesterday and didn't come back happy. As a true hoarder, the lady that owns the 'store' is asking for a fortune for anything that is inside. It really seems that she doesn't want to sell anything and therefore asks for a lot of money to have a reason to keep everything. Please don't get me wrong, I don't want anything for free but I do not like being overcharged either. I will try and go back at a later date and see what happens and I will sure to keep you posted.
Have a peaceful and creative day,
