Today I am once again participating in two fun parties:
Thrifty Thursday with Leigh @ Tales from Bloggeritaville and
Vintage Thingies Thursday with Suzanne @ Coloradolady
I always enjoy sharing my vintage, thrifty finds so many thanks to both ladies for hosting these events. Make sure you link back to their blogs to see who else has joined the party!!
I love old tarnished silver pieces, especially cream and sugar bowls. I am always on the hunt for them when I go thrifting and over the past couple of months I have purchased several. At first I was using them to store/display buttons and other embellishments but pretty soon my collection was getting out of hand. With all of these pieces piling up I had to come up with an idea on how to give them a new life. Here's a picture of some of the pieces I have collected. I have not paid over $3.00 for any one piece.
Now here is what I decided to make with some of the collection....pincushions. I have made 15 pincushions so far (with another 10 to go) and I will be selling them (amongst other vintage, thrifty items) at the Octoberfest Craft Show on October 3rd in Atchison, KS. If you live in the area make sure you stop by and say hello!!
Thanks for stopping by!
