I so love to work with old tarnished silver pieces but when I found these two treasures, I couldn't resist buying them. I found this piece first, a candle holder and it just appealed to me. It reminded me of a pincushion I had made a while ago. It too was gold colored and also a flower or rather three of them.
My next finding was from a different store and again normally I wouldn't have thought about buying it but it reminded me too of that same pincushion again I had made some time ago. With that one I had used a brooch that was made up from two golden colored butterflies. It became my ' Golden Afternoon' pincushion.
Isn't this such a beautiful dragonfly?!
No question that these two golden treasures will together become a new pincushion creation of mine. They just seem to be made for each other in my eyes. All I have to do I just have to figure out how I am going to do it and which fabric I am going to use and hopefully I will be able to share it soon with all of you.
I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day.
