A New Little Tarnished Get~Together ..

Hello my dear friends,

I have to take a few days off from doing any strenuous work and rest a little but that also means I am able to be creative which is so very nice.

I haven't even shared any of my findings of what I had purchased whilst treasure hunting two weeks ago even though I have taken all the photos. Time just wasn't on my side so far because I have been so incredibly busy. I did use one of these findings though in the creation I am sharing with all of you lovely bloggers today.

This is one of the pieces I found.
It was a little tarnished tray and as I saw it ...

... I knew exactly what I was going to do with it.
It has become such a lovely piece ... not too little and not too much but just right.

I turned it into this ...

... a small 'tarnished get~together' and I love it!

I named it ... 'Just Sew Lovely'.

For this little sewing tray I used a small tarnished egg cup for the pincushion base. The actual pincushion I made from linen that is covered in a piece from an old doily.The final touches were an old tatty broach and a box made from crinkled seam binding. All together they were perfect in my eyes.

I hope you have enjoyed my newest creation.
This neat little piece is now for sale and listed in my Etsy shop.

(This little creation is now sold ~ thank you.)

Thank you so much for stopping by today and visiting me here at Todolwen. It would be so nice if you came sometime again to see what I have been up too.

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

Have a peaceful and creative day.
