A White Teacup and Saucer....

I've been busy at work stocking up for an upcoming show in November. I have some of my "Transformed" Teacup & Saucers ready to go. Let me share with you...
I had a customer who called last week and needed a quick gift. It had to be Black & white and she was a seamstress. So this pincushion worked out perfect! I found these cute little spoons so I decided to add them to the pincushions. I just embellished it with a button and rhinestone. Can't forget the BLING.
I love to add the buttons to the pins. I think it goes so well with the sewing theme.
Added my little tag and the gift was ready.
Presentation is very important to me. Those of you who are crafters know exactly what I'm talking about. Just simply wrapping the gift in clear cellophane would not do. I love to add all the extras... A big satin bow and some iridescent shred and it's ready to be shipped off. Next time you run across a single teacup and saucer at the thrift store think about the possibilities. Looking for more inspiration? I'll be linking this post to some wonderful blogs. Come take a peek. Wishing you a day filled with joy and happiness.
