today I am going to finally show you what was in the box that arrived in the mail a few weeks ago.
I took me 'forever' to find treasures like these but they are here and I am so happy that was able to work with them.
So far you have only seen this ...
... and now I will show you what is under that bubble wrap and paper ...
... it was these lovely old egg shaped table lighters ~ all neat and that in pink enamel.
As far as I know they were made in the 1950's or 1960's. The enamel is all tattered and chipped, in some places a little more and in some places a little less but that doesn't take away from their neat character and look.
I am sure you all know where this went again once again and that is what I am sharing with all of you today ... the first one of my three newest creations.
On the outside nothing has changed at all and that is exactly how I wanted it but ...
... but once you open it up and ...
... turn it around, you will be able to see what I have done with it.
Of course I just had to give it a new life as a pincushion and such a delightful one in my eyes.
Vintage pale pink velvet, some old tatting and a vintage porcelain broach were meant to be together and make this creation what it is ... just lovely!
What do you think?
Instead of covering the original decor up in this piece ...
... I decided to just enhance it by framing it with some old tatting.
I am definitely not a pink person but I do love how this creation has come together, pink or not and I hope you have enjoyed it too. Don't forget, there are two more 'pink eggs' to come very soon. All three of these 'pink eggs' will be listed in my Etsy shop once I have shared them all with you, just in case any of you might be interested in one of them.
Thank you for taking the time to visit me today, here at Todolwen and it would be so nice if you would do so again some time.
I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day.
