I very recently acquired this sweet little silver plated
sugar bowl at a flea market and decided
to embellish it for using
as a pincushion
I modelled it on one I recently saw on Julia's blog
(thank you dear Julia for that inspiration!!)
I also added some braid as well as some
beautiful fringing which I had
purchased from Liz's Etsy shop
where Liz sells French brocante and English antique
and vintage pieces.
I thought it might complement a couple of other
which I had made recently
like this one
and the one on the left of this picture.
I just used some burlap, french themed cotton,
beaded and embroidered cotton with
some vintage lace pieces
and to finish off I added some fancy embroidered machine
The little silver plated pot was just too sweet
not to use on a daily basis creating
in my studio.
Some of life's simple pleasures and treasures!
I am so very thankful for all of your most gracious
comments left on my posts and to
every new follower - I hope you have a very inspiring
and creative week ahead!
Love and thanks, Suzy oxo
