Shabby White Delights

Love the aged white of vintage clothes.

This is another picutre from the new store
in Redmond Oregon.
Back Porch & Company.

Lisa has a real knack for putting things together.
(see more of her store HERE)

Here is an order I finished today.
It is a pin cushion using a clear glass
candle holder as a base.

It is hollow inside so I put in a few buttons.
(sorry, hard to see against the lace. Click to enlarge)
Here is a close up of the vintage doily on the top.

Hope you like it Karen. =)

And here is another bit of sweetness I finished last night.
oops sideways. sorry.
This is a little lavender sachet,
with one of my gauze flowers on it.

Tutorial for easy sachet coming soon.

I adore that pincushion on the glass candlestick. It looks beautiful, and must be such a joy to use. With your permission, I would love to make something similar as a Christmas pressie for a friend of mine who loves sewing.

I love vintage lace blouses!! Your sachet is so pretty! I will have to try to make one, as well as make one of the pin cushions.

Donna said...

Your pincushion is beautiful, Barbara Jean! What a creative idea! I love how you put the buttons inside of the vase. And I can't wait to check out how to make those gorgeous flowers on your pretty sachet! Happy WW!


Hi Barbara Jean, Just love your whites. You are so talented! Thanks for sharing your skills with us. I just love your creations. I will be reading more of your blog this year.
