today I am sharing my latest creation which is my newest pincushion made from a Evans table lighter housing. It is the second piece I had bought off eBay and just like the first one (the pineapple lighter housing) I just couldn't resist working with it right away.
Unfortunately I didn't find a photo of the lighter when it was in perfect condition but this is it before I worked with it ...
... so beautiful even with all the missing enamel, being tarnished and a broken finial.
Now it looks like this ...
... so lovely!
I named this creation ... ' Timeworn Treasure'.
I enjoyed creating my newest pincushion so much and I hope you have enjoyed too.
Vintage table lighters are now on my 'hot list' ~ I would love to make a few more of these neat and special pincushions. This one is already sold.
Before I forget ... tomorrow on July 21st I will be announcing the winner of my 'Christmas To Come' 2015 giveaway, so if you haven't entered your name yet, there is still a little time. Just click on the button on my right sidebar and leave a comment. Good luck to all of you!
