Finally My Own

What to post for WHITE WEDNESDAY?

You know I suffer from short term memory loss.
I do?
And then I remembered something from
a recent crafting...recent as in this morning.
Now that's really short term...
For about a year now I have seen variations of
the baby show pin cushion from
Dawn's The Feathered Nest and just
last week one at an antique mall.
With a ginger jar filling up with shoes
today was the day to put
my own spin on it.
I didn't follow the safety rules while operating the
Dremel tool on the wooden block or
while using the pliers to remove the
clip-on part of this earring.
But all turned out well and with no injuries.

Even a bit of rusty red on the ribbon
because ya know...

Yesterday I served up some chocolate,
today how 'bout some sweet RED cherries.
And what do you White Wednesday gals
think about this sink?

May all your
dreams come true~~

Hope you take time to visit
Faded Charm Cottage
It's A Very Cherry World!

The Baby shoe pincushion is adorable ~ terrific job!
I think the sink with the cherries and running water should be in a magazine or win a prize in a photo contest! I would frame that one!

Dawn said...

What a sweet little pincushion! This is my first time seeing one like that. I guess I don't get around the blog world as much as I should! Well it's just darling! A great thing to do with baby shoes, instead of just packing them away!
Happy Rednesday!

Hi Candy, you did a beautiful job on the baby shoe pincushion. I've been looking for shoes like that and have come up with nothing. I had my one daughters bronzed, but they had many pairs. Why, oh, why didn't I keep them? I love the sink picture also. Reminds me of my Grandmother's kitchens.
