A Little Glass Pear ..

Hello my dear friends,

I have been spending a lot of time at home these past weeks so it was nice to go out again for a little bit. I visited a few stores and in one I found a little something that I liked. It was just a little delightful piece and I wanted to be a tiny bit creative and this was the piece I choose to work with. A little later at home and my newest creation which turned out to be a new pincushion, was finished and that is what I would like to share with you today.

This is the piece I took home ...

.. a small glass candy dish in the shape of a pear.
I love that it is such a simple little piece.

It now looks like this ... it has become my newest little pincushion creation.
Drop cloth, seam binding, vintage lace and sparkles were the perfect choice for this creation. It is still simple but so elegant now in my eyes.

I just couldn't resist and called it ... "Simply Pearfect"



I love little pincushion and I think I will keep a look out for another little candy dish like this.I would like to make into another little pincushion but this time maybe using vintage pale green velvet instead of drop cloth. 

Thank you for visiting me here at Todolwen and I hope you have enjoyed my newest creation.

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

Have a peaceful and creative day.
