I have been blessed by many friends during this birthday celebration month. I want to share with you over the next few days some of the thoughtful and beautiful gifts I received. My friend, Joyce, gave me this pretty pincushion. The picture doesn't show the detail. The felting of the flowers is exquisite. The little leaf pin is adorable too!
My friend, Char, gave me this vintage pincushion. Holland, MI is not too far from us. It could have been made as a souvenir back in the day. Do you see the little thimble in it's holder? Such a charming shoe. It measures about 4 1/2 inches from heel to point. What a treasure!
I hope this finds you enjoying your Saturday. Yesterday it was 41 degrees, all the snow melted and the sun was shining brightly. We woke this morning to a blanket of snow and cold temps, but the sun is still shining! Beautiful!
