Almost Forgot To Share ..

Hello my dear friends,

one thing I forgot to do with a prevoius  post was give you the possibility to see the size of the millinery head pincushion. So ... without further a do...

... here is the pincushion and next to it you will find a Looney to give you an idea on the actual size of it and saying that, the size of it is just under 5 inches.

I also have a few new findings to share with you as well. I found them some time ago and I don't know why I haven't shown them to you so far?!

A wee pair of 'klompjes' ~ they are only to 2 inches long.

A nice tarnished trinket box ~ now I just need to give it a new life and ...


... lots and lots ...


... of pretties!!


 This is some of my favorite fabric. I use it in my pictures a lot. I wanted you to see the detail up close because it is so pretty. I bought it few years ago as 'damaged goods' in a Fabric Land store for $2 a yard and I am so glad I did!!

And last but not least ...

... I just have to share something with you that my daughter said to me a few days ago, which I thought was so sweet and neat. She said if I were a Monopoly piece, I would be the one everybody would want to have. That touched my heart so much! I hope you are the Monopoly piece in someone's life too!!

I would love to to visit me here at Todolwen soon again!


I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.
