A Vintage Lace Pin Cushion and Stick Pins

My newest addiction is making stick I needed another if lace, ribbon, buttons, and paper crafting weren't enough  ;-)

Anyway, I needed a place to keep my stick pins until I need them on a project...I came up with this little pin's a block of wood (don't you love using power tools when crafting!) with a foam top totally enrobed in layers of vintage lace trims...yummy. This one is mostly for my pearl stick pins and purple stick pins. I plan to make a second pin cushion to house the many other pins I recently made...I told you I was addicted.

Shabby Chic Peat Moss Pot with Button Flowers and Edwardian Vintage Lace

I just love shades of brown...very antique. My charming project for today turned out just as I had envisioned. The larger peat moss pot is for myself and features an antique Edwardian lace cuff off a Victorian dress. I wonder what the Victorian woman and owner of this cuff would think if she could see her dress cuff being used in this manner. I believe she'd be delighted, and I would enjoy listening to her share all the details about events she took part in as she wore this dress cuff. The smaller pot features red antique buttons because this little pot of spring is for my mom and red is her favorite color. I can't go to my mom's Easter dinner tomorrow empty handed...this little treasure is a surprise for her. Happy Spring!
