Well, actually, I'm feeling somewhat Blue today, but I don't want to give in to that feeling, so I took a look around and thought I'd rather spend some time thinking PINK. It's one of my favorite colors. Going round the house finding pink things to highlight is much more cheerful, so here is some of what I found to show you.
Silk roses, a pink crocheted heart pincushion, various threads - some vintage, a calling card, a couple balls of crochet cotton....embellished, of course. An old pincushion doll (more about her further down this post) a vintage post card, scissors, vintage sewing tools, pieces of vintage jewelry, a watch, and one of my very favorite things...a vintage photo. This stuff should get anyone like me out of a blue mood!
Just take a good look!
I'd love to make my own crocheted heart pincushion like this. I should look for the instructions.
Old buttons, forgot to mention those. Always on the hunt for them...seems I never get enough of looking for them!
Bits of old jewelry. It's always nice to add a bit of sparkle to whatever you are doing. Well, IF you ask me. And, I LOVE that calling card!
A plastic crochet hook...and then there are is a long and a short bodkin...I'm not sure if they are early plastic or ivory.
And, here she is....the pincushion doll. Isn't she pretty. (Love those old beads next to her face too!)
Now, she does have a story....
Here she is again...kinda peeking into the photo. And, notice the two ladies in the old photo. So Cute!
The old jewelry...that old watch face...love 'em all!! I think the small roses are made of paper.
I've saved several old watches I've found here and there.
There she is again. Have you gotten attached to her yet? I have, as you will see.
Just another view of the bowl of goodies!!
A lovely collection of Pink!
A very close-up of the card and those little 'jewels.'
So, now here is the story of this lady. She's fabulous! I love her so much and have tried to take such good care of her....
Doesn't she look special here? Well, there was a little accident......I simply dropped her before the move.
And this is how she looks now. I simply could not bring myself to throw her away.
She looks so hopeful that all will go well. The eternal optimist, I suppose.
And, if you place her 'just so' with a bunch of other pretty stuff...well, one can still see how beautiful she is!
See...a little Pink can get you out of the "blues."
While I'm on the subject of pink,
I will continue with pink and show you some things I have made in that color.
