Just My Thing ..

Hello my dear friends,

as many of you have already realized, creating pincushions is just my thing and has been since a long time now and I don't think that that will every change. I love creating and I love to try different things but I always, always will fall back onto making my beloved pincushions.

I am forever on the lookout for neat pieces to use for my pincushion creations, hence my last one ... the butter dish sewing keep and pincushion and I always get such a buzz when I find a unique piece to work with. Whilst out and about this last Saturday it turned out that I was home alone all day. My younger daughter was in Disney World in Florida, my older daughter was away for the day in Stratford with her husband and my husband still is in Alberta, waiting to find out when he will be able to return to work after the terrible fire. It was just me and the cats. I don't really go out junking that often these days anymore but it was the perfect time for me to do so and I was very fortunate to find a very neat piece to work with. It is of course tarnished and just so me and I think you just might agree when you see what I found. 

And this my newest finding ...

... a tarnished lid!
I am not sure what it was from and where the bottom was but do I ever love it!

It is so pretty and ornate, beyond perfect for me in each and every way and I can't wait to start working with it! I don't think it will take me too long before I will be albe to share it with all of you, so do come back soon and see how it has turned out.

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

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. What fun to see what you do with this!

  2. Gorgeous piece!! Can't wait to see what you do with it.


  3. I'm sure whatever you come up with will be beautiful. This has such gorgeous character.

  4. Did you hear that huge intake of air as I gasped????????? Love this and cannot wait to see what magic you create!

    Happy day!

  5. I do hope your Husband goes back to work soon, I am saddened by the fires, we had a few here in Minnesota.
    I look forward to seeing what you do with this, I like how you do not polish any of the silver piece's you by, I have a candle stitck collection I do not polish them I like the look.


  6. These pieces look fine just the way they are placed and it has an antique look which is amazing. Stay blessed and happy. Great post.
