Everything In Its Place
I love going thrift shopping and frequently stop into my local Goodwill store to see what treasures I might find. Loretta taught me a love of thrift shopping and re-purposing vintage items. One of my favorite things to look for in thrift shops is old silver plate. You can often find items from vintage tea sets - old tea pots, creamers, sugar bowls, etc. You can use these items to hold things like buttons, pens and pencils or other craft and sewing supplies.
I like to use the creamers to make pin cushions. Here is one I made about three years ago. I use it to hold the stick pins I have been making lately. Isn't it nice when you have a place for everything and everything is in its place! This is such a nice way to store and display the stick pins. I love looking at it.
