vintage planter pincushions

I need to warn you, I have a new obsession.   I love finding cute little vintage planters!   I am always on the look out for them at thrift shops and antique shops.  If I can find them for a reasonable price I snatch them up.    Awhile back after I found my first one I put a pincushion in it so I could enjoy having it on my sewing table and look at it all the time.

Now with the new ones that I find I'm starting to make them into pincushions too.  I just did a little Instagram sale last night and sold these four.  

Aren't they just the sweetest!   I've got some more in the works so will have more available in couple weeks.  :)

I hope you have a lovely Thursday!  See ya soon!

  11. Cars are no more a luxury item now, but it has become the basic necessity of the people.
    Before you purchase a used car, it is very important to
    not forget that there was an earlier owner so you must get information about the history of
    the car. Let we introduce you to top of the most searching site for

  13. Another assist that you may or may not want to adjust off the bat is the transmission. This tension contributed to the last
    accident when he changed lanes. It really is true that sometimes
    the best things come in small packages.

  15. Kerri your pin cushions are so cute. I have been doing that and putting them in my little shop in town. It seems like everything I see I can see a pin cushion made out of it. It is so much fun.

  16. What a wonderful idea! Your repurposed planters are absolutely the cutest - thanks so much for sharing....I have a couple treasured baby planters (given to my Mom when I was born...I think that makes them Uber and now I think at least one (if not both) will be my new very special pincushions! Thank you so much for the inspiration!

  17. I love your little pincushion Vintage planters. I can't wait to get home from a travel work week to play with my Vintage Planters! Can't wait!! Can not wait!!

  18. Oh wow, these are just perfect! so sweet. I used to have an old donkey planter around for many years but it eventually broke, they are pretty hard to find these days. You've inspired me, I'll keep a look out for a new one. I Love your creations, I too am a mama of six ... Karen
