Precious little shoes....worn by a little girl's favorite doll or
maybe silk ruffled booties that have once been on a chubby baby's foot ~
I love them all!
If they're dirty, scuffed or even smashed flat....it doesn't matter.
They can still be brought back to life.
It just takes a little tender loving care and these little forgotten
treasures can have a new purpose and make someone smile again!
I've been a busy bee the last few days....here's what I've been up to:
A tiny doll shoe transformed into a pincushion ~
Just add a few embellishments...tiny bits of antique lace...and pretty trims ~
it doesn't take much to turn something ordinary into something precious!
Here's is what I've been up to sweet friends ~
All are now in my little Etsy shop!
I didn't really have any pretty pins to place in these pincushions
so I had to make a few ~
I've shared this with you before but it's so easy, I had to share it again.
The supplies are simple....straight pins, a few old pearls, tiny beads and a little jewelry glue!
I usually prepare a few...feed the beads or pearls onto the pins, only about halfway ~
Then put a little jewelry glue near the head and down the pin about a quarter of an inch.
Slide the beads up to the head and wipe off any excess glue that blobs out onto
a piece of scrap paper....then just lay the pins down to dry for awhile.
My pretty little pins are now ready for a pincushion!
Take the ordinary and transform it into something extraordinary!
Have a beautiful Wednesday precious friends,
hugs and love,
