My new pin keep and some other things I've been up to!!!

Here is my new pin keep. I got it from Wendy she sells on Artfire and I just love it. She is just 6" tall. In a great prim mustard with rusty pins. I am always losing my most favorite needle so I got her to keep it on.

This is my new glass pot I am using to grubby up my goodies now. It was my Moms. I love it cuz I can see in to it. That is a couple of my grubby doilies I am going to be listing. I used some old molasses I had. Boy does it help to make things darker and smell yummy!!

This is a bird nest in a spoon I have listed in my Etsy shoppe. I am thinking Spring!!!

And this is my new Sweet Vintage Spoon Pin Cushion. It is sweet and shabby chic. I used some grubbied up chenille and some pink vintage trim I had. I added some old buttons and silver pins to it. The pin cushion is only 3 inches. I just love the way it turned out!! I know I'll be making more of these!!
 I hope everyone is doing ok with the way this crazy weather has been! Been saying my prayers. We have two down sick here with colds and right down in bed. I am staying away from them! It is Sim and Brooke. I have a kidney stone and will be having surgery in a couple weeks to break it up. I know I shouldn't laugh but when it rains it pours! So I have decided to create! ALOT!!! LOL I am thinking Spring and I know alot of you are too!! Stay safe!
Love, XO Fran.

I can see why you had to have the great Pin Keeper. Wish we could smell the yumminess of your molasses concoction.
Very sweet spoon pincushions. Would look wonderful just hanging in the craft room.
