Inside The Box ..

Hello my dear friends,

I actually forgot to share what was in the box I told you about in yesterdays post. 

After having created a pincushion using an Evans table lighter housing I just wanted to see if I could find anymore neat pieces and I did and these are the two new pieces I had bought on ebay.

Aren't they just so lovely?!

They both are again vintage Evans table lighters (I removed the inside before I took the photos) and
I couldn't be happier to have found them.

I am already busy gathering bits and pieces together and working on how I want them to look like once done. They both of course will become pincushions but then that was already given thing. I am so excited to create them which I am sure will be sooner than later. 

Do stop by again soon if you have a little spare time and maybe I will have something new to share with you.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. These will make beautiful pin cushions also Karen, I look forward to seeing what you create!!

  2. Thank you for always sharing the pieces you find, Karen, as I love vintage pieces becoming new again. I'm excited as well to see your finished pieces of art. You encourage me to create unique pieces as well. I love seeing your posts in my email! <3

  3. How beautiful! Can't wait to see the your finished project!

  4. Cannot WAIT to see the end result. I just know it will be breathtaking!

    Happy day ...

  5. These are fun pieces - perfect for your creations. We were in the local second hand store today and I checked out the tarnished silver pieces - some of them were as low as $2 each (wouldn't our grandmothers/mothers be horrified to think their precious silver was going for mere pennies?)
