A Little Help ~

working away.....
Holed up either in my sewing room watching my fav movies on DVD
(hocus pocus, witches of eastwick, practical magic...|
yeah I know, etc, etc, etc....)
~ or ~ smack dab in front of the TV watching my fav programs ~
(I won't bore you with details, but i LOVE anything paranormal...surprise? yeah...I didn't think so)
So anyhoo....
I work with my hands SO much ~ as most of you do too ~ that I thought ....
a little
"Helping Hand"
would be welcomed...
so I've created a few for the
Ghoultide Gathering Show, coming up before i  (YOU) know it!!!
six different little hands, stuffed with batting ~ holding an antique spool of thread & a vintage pin-or-two...

I decided to add a cuff of early. cream colored LACE for a cuff for each hand...

twigs collected from our baryard act as stems...
and Old Thread Spools from my personal collection
accompany these hand pinkeeps ~

lots of different, early lace used as 'cuff's' for the 'helping hand' pinkeeps...and OLDE thread spools ~
.LOVE the look of these on my vintage SILVER tray ~
....all available at the Ghoutlide show this comeing weekend!
Blessings from Notforgotten Farm...

I love how you've displayed them on the silver platter. The lace added for a cuff on each one is the perfect touch. Best wishes for a great show. Hugs, Lori
