My 'Olde Strawberry Delight' ..

Hello my dear friends,

today I would like to share my newest creation with you in which I used one of the vintage Christmas light reflectors.

 As soon as I saw them in the store, I had the perfect creation in mind. You all know how much I love making pin cushions and my thing for my drop cloth strawberries. What better to make than one of these with one of the light reflectors and that is exactly what I did.

And this is my ...

'Olde Strawberry Delight'.

I made it a little elegant and a very subtle subtle colored pin cushion and every part of it was picked because of it's particular look.

Every part of this creation stands out so nicely on it's own ... from the old tatty lace to the lovely seam binding, from the vintage Christmas light reflector to the antique crystals from an old chandelier and from the drop cloth to the simple stitching on it. In the end they all make this lovely creation.

Right I am working on finishing my second creation also using another one of the reflectors. I too is also a strawberry pincushion but it is very different from the one I am sharing today. Hopefully I will have it done in the next few days, so do pop back soon.

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

Have a peaceful and creative day.

  4. Absolutely beautiful. You have a the gift of creativity and the skill to bring your ideas to life. Just lovely!

  5. Stunning! Simply stunning. You have an amazing talent for seeing the possibility in things. I would never have imagined using the reflectors this way, but I'm sure glad you did. Your creations are a delight to see.

  6. As always, you've created something special out of something that other people would simply throw away. Love it!

  7. Funny thing. When I saw the light reflectors the other day, the first thing that came to my mind was a strawberry cap. Sure 'nuff. You worked your magic once again! Perfect.

    Keep on delighting!
