Hello dear friends.
Monday's are SO very busy here in my
Studio these days!
SO many exciting
things are beginning to happen!
It is very easy for me to say that of all the different antique
sewing collections I have, my absolute favorite
collection is my metal animal pincushions.
The one I'll share today reminds me of Autumn....
~ Antique Pheasant Pincushion ~
This is the largest of all my animal pincushions, measuring
8" long from beak to tail.
The metal is very nicely detailed. I love the feet!
Usually these hard to find metal animal pincushions will be
stamped with a makers mark.
This one is stamped on the underside "Japan".
The metal used on these types of pincushions will vary from
Sterling Silver, Silver Plated, Nickel,
Copper, and more commonly used would be Pot Metal.
So many Autumn leaves.....
This rabbit friend sits amongst my chive plants and is
completely surrounded by fallen leaves.
I so happy to give an update on my wild rabbit friend
Abigail (Abby), she is alive and well....
She been hanging around the barn every night eating her
Now that it's getting dark out so early these pictures didn't
turn out very well :(
I'm always so happy to visit with my sweet Abby!
She is definitely fluffier looking with her winter
coat filling in.
