I have been collecting odd-things to use as bases,
just the right vintage & worn fabrics for the pinkeeps.
bent & dull safety-pins
tiny bake-lite rings to sew on and use as thread-keepers,
sewing rolls ~
...made with assorted repro & vintage fabrics and old velvet ribbons...
I collect Make-Do pincushions & sewing needfuls, old & made-to-look-old.
I love their wonkiness, character and impression of a simpler way of life...
...the old wingback chairs in the keeping room have been patched with cotton fabric,
where kitty-claws have lovingly (or-not-so) left their mark...
...the small, favorite soup pot in the kitchen that has a replacement handle
(one made from an old garage-door handle!)
2 of my old linen tablecloths, patched with love & brought out every holiday...
new with the old.
Blessings from the Farm,
