My new favorite old thing.........


So I fell completely and utterly in love with this old hat pincushion that I found on Etsy, from Kathyssewingroom, a lovely little shop with great old sewing notions...I love everything about it, the faded colors, the velvet flowers, the old tulle netting, the satiny fabric.
Almost swooned when I unwrapped it. It hangs right above my work table in my studio so I can gaze upon it each and every day...
Smitten I am......
What are you smitten with lately?

I can see why you scooped it up! So lovely. I am smitten with vintage candy boxes lately though I have yet to snatch one. Come for a visit. I am having a giveaway.
