Pin Cushions And Pink Saturday............

Another Sweet Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet The Sound. Click on the Pink Saturday link on the right to visit lots and lots of beautiful ladies and their pretty Pink blogs.

This week passed in a haze, but I do remember making these unique and chic, if I do say so myself, Pin Cushions. lol! They have pretty high end fabrics for their dresses and they are embellished with Mulberry roses, vintage posies, vintage laces and buttons and even the wooden spools, that I have finally found a use for, are vintage!

The weather was mild and nice and the Spring flowers are up...way up and we learned we have some snow on the way! I had a stern talk with Mother Nature and so I only expect a few pretty flakes!! The tulips and daffodils seem to weather the snow well, tho. Some winters their new green leaves are poking thru snow! That always amazes me that they do not turn brown and die. The tender pink shoots of the Peonies and Bleeding hearts have just broken thru the ground and I will cover them with pots if we really get snow...........

Well, here are my dress form pin cushions....I have to say I am pleased with how they turned out. I have lots more ideas for them....it is so much fun to create something pretty, but useful,too, and these two are listed on eBay. You can click on the link over to the right if you would like to see all of the pictures. I will get some on Etsy and LolliShops, hopefully, after the bunny orders are finished, this next week.









And another~~~~~~



Pretty vintage croched lace and beautiful vintage eyelet from a closed dressmakers shop of long ago. Don't you just love the fresh look of pretty eyelet? I know I do as it brings back memories of when I was a child. My Mom often made some of my clothes and she would use it on a blouse or skirt, knowing how much I loved it.






I Came Up With The Idea Of Having A Place To Keep Your Thimble Securely, Between The First Dress Form Pin Cushion And The Second One. That way you always know where it is.


Vintage and new buttons for more charm.

Thank you for visitng and have a wonderful week!!
Hugs to all,
Jil

Mimi's Rose Chenille Boutique said...

Jil ~ You know I had the same thing happen to me when we had a lawn service (if you want to call it that!) They totally ruined my yard, both my husband and I were both "bloomin mad"! This is what started my research, I had found this book quite a while back, and then misplaced it, so we are going to use all the tonics, snacks and everything they recommend to do. I love the fact that is it mostly things you have in your home would never have thought of using.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, are you going to sell your cute little pincushions? I would love to be able to get one for my granddaughter, Lauren, she is 9 and I bought her, her first sewing machine for Christmas, it would be such a cute addition to her sewing area!

Keep me posted on your lawn, roses and garden, if you have one. I will be posting tips for the next couple of weeks on different things relating to gardening!

The firm presents 1 particular [url=http://www.hotdeal.vn/ho-chi-minh/]gia re hom nay[/url] for every doing work day in each and every one of the marketplaces it serves. The Groupon works as an assurance arrangement making use of ThePoint's technique: if a certain amount of folks indicator up for the offer, then the deal gets offered to all if the predetermined the very least is not reached, no 1 will get the deal that functioning working day. This minimizes chance for merchants, who can take treatment of the price reduction codes as quantity discount rates as nicely as revenue promotion methods. Groupon tends to make revenue by keeping about half the money the customer pays for the coupon.

For case in position, an $eighty therapeutic massage could be obtained by the client for $forty via Groupon, and then Groupon and the retailer would break up the $forty. That is, the retailer provides a therapeutic massage valued at $eighty and gets approximately $twenty from Groupon for it (underneath a 50%/fifty% split up). Or, if $240 benefit of residence portray firms is obtained by the shopper for $50 through Groupon, then the organization will get $25 and Groupon retains $20 5. The customer gets the massage, or the home painting companies, in these illustrations, from the retailer for which they at 1st paid $forty (or $50) to Groupon. There are particular businesses to which Groupon at first did not supply its options, like having photos ranges and strip golf gear however, capturing ranges have been highlighted on Groupon.

Not like labeled selling, the merchant does not shell out any upfront cost to consider element: Groupon collects individualized information from all set buyers and then contacts only individuals buyers, mostly by day-to-day e mail, who may possibly probably potentially be intrigued in a specific items or providers.

Groupon employs a huge amount of copywriters who draft descriptions for the discounts showcased by digital mail and on the world wide web internet site. Groupon's promoting textual articles for the 'deals' has been observed as a contributing issue to the acceptance of the internet web site, that involves a distinct blend of extensive truth-checking and witty humor.

Owing to Groupon's market area becoming mostly composed of female clients, the bargains are often specific on the wellness, physical fitness and attractiveness markets.

There are prospective difficulties with the enterprise design and style. For illustration, a profitable provide could briefly swamp a small enterprise with way way too a number of clients, jeopardizing a likelihood that buyers will be dissatisfied, or that there will not be ample solution to fulfill the need. Hole, a large clothing retailer, was capable to consider treatment of 445,000 coupon codes in a countrywide deal (even however it seasoned server troubles at a single distinct position), but a smaller sized company could expand to be out of the blue flooded with shoppers. A one espresso store in Portland, Oregon struggled with an enhance in buyers for three months, when it provided in close proximity to to a single,000 Groupons on the 1 specific day it was presented, in accordance to a one report. In response to connected difficulties, Groupon officers position out that 'deal' subscriptions ought to be capped in advance to a reasonable variety.

Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it
to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell
someone!
