Found these great stick pins and pins at the thrift store and some were even 50% off...wooo hooo made my day. Now I've got to get busy and make some pin keeps to put them on. As soon as I get them finished and listed on Etsy I will post some pics on my blog.

See a pin and pick it up,
All the day you'll have good luck;
See a pin and let it lay,
Bad luck you'll have all the day.

Decided to work on a couple Pin Keeps. These are my own designs and were alot of fun to make. I have them listed on my Etsy Shop. 
I've got a few more in the works and when I'm finished I'll post some pics. Heading to the thrift shops later in the week looking for old hat pins, needles, safety pins, bobbins and anything old and cool that I can ad to my Pin Keeps.

"Chicken Soup"

Just listed this on Etsy. This is one of my favorite designs in the "Prim Cookin" Collection. I think the best part of creating this design was going to the Flea Market to find an old enamel pot to put her in. I'm planning to hit some garage sales tomorrow..hope I find some old vintage goodies to use in my "Prim Cookin" Collection.

I just finished a custom order for an Etsy buyer... She wanted a custom cat pillow that looked like her cat Georgie. This is the first cat that I have made that is orange and I love how it turned out. Sandra also sells on Etsy and has some really neat things in her shop... be sure to check it out....

Great Finds...What To Do With Them?

One of my favorite things to do is to search the Thrift Stores and Flea Markets for old vintage pieces that I can incorporate into my designs. I found this old rusty oil can last summer at a flea market... I had to have it... I got the guy down to a great price but I still haven't figured out what I want to do with it.  Some other favorite finds are old enamel pots, cast iron skillets, old metal funnels, old strainers and old amber glass jugs.
Check back soon and see what I come up with!
