The ugly poodle planter above became a pincushion for my mother-in-law Christmas Eve
(a very last minute gift!)
and my mother (currently visiting with me from New Jersey)
liked the results so much that she asked if I could make a pincushion for her too.
transforming this vintage/ antique hair keeper (the lid was cracked so I tossed it)
into a boudoir-worthy pincushion.
My mother loves it!
Merry Christmas, Mom!
Now we are eyeing small teapots, teacups without saucers, widowed sugar bowls
and silly planters as candidates for pincushions.
We are on a mission to equip all of our friends with upcycled pin keepers!
The first one I ever made is for sale in my etsy.
