Vintage Pin Cushions

Vintage planters turned into cute pin cushions.  These cuties came from my father-in-laws estate. Not sure why he had them and if he ever used them for anything, but when my husband saw them, he knew I’d surely make them into something for my sewing room/studio.  Inspired by Lori Holt, check out her tutorial on how to make pin cushions from vintage finds. 🥰

Another July 2021 Finish

Snuck in another 4th of July finish – just in the knick of time as we enter the last week of July.  Fourth of July Sampler by The Humble Sitcher 🥰.  Such a cute piece – I’ll be giving it a quick dip into a cozy tea-bath and fashioning it into a pillow tuck 💕 ✂️ ☺️.

Hope you carve out some hobby time in your world – creativity is a health attribute, let’s harness it!

Micro Mantis

The Smallest Praying Mantis

While trimming my bonsai trees today I came across this bug that I thought was a mosquito, some say the state bird of South Carolina. After further investigation I noticed it was the smallest Praying Mantis I have ever seen! It was not even 3/8”. Watch the video and tell me what you think.

Dog, Crows, Eagle

As two crows fly with an eagle

This morning Ryker with his with crows was letting us know he heard them. It was a strange time in the day to hear that, so I looked to see what was going on and there were five crows chattering around a bald eagle across the lagoon from our backyard. It was a sight to see, thinking I’d miss getting a photo opportunity I went and grab the camera anyway. I managed to get some decent shots. What do you think?
