Perfect Pink Scotty Pin Cushion!

While at the beach, all the shops had a sidewalk sale going on. I found new sandals, purple capris, and this...

A cute little antique Scotty dog flower holder in PINK that would be perfect for a pin cushion.
At $5 it's a bargain, and reminds me of my childhood.
What better thing to buy on a big birthday weekend??








I added a pin cushion made from a bright turqoise and pink fabric stuffed with wool batting scraps, tied with ribbon floss!
So cute, right? Just the right size.
My other ceramic pin cushions of poodles and a donkey which cost more than 5 buckaroos, will happily welcome Scotty into the collection! (Slightly obsessed with pin cushions especially these four)

I'm in love...

  3. What a great find. That Scottie is so cute. Scotties have always been close to my heart. When I was born my parents had a Scottie named Bonnie. She wouldn't look at me, totally insulted that they brought another pup into the house. But they would find her sleeping under my crib when they weren't looking!

    My grandfather had a brass hound dog pipe stand. I sure wish I had that again!

    1. I know, whatever it was. I looked it up online, and it seems to have been a vase made in the 50's but it's small enough to be an egg cup.
      Imagine these days taking enough time to soft boil an egg and eat it out of the shell in a cup!! Times are different.

  7. What a great idea for a really cute pincushion. I have some small items from my childhood (I'm 73) and I think you have given me a clue as to how to use them in my sewing room. Thanks for this.

  8. What a clever repurpose. I will have to keep an eye out for similar little ceramics. They would make terrific gifts for the quilter or crafter in one's life!

  18. Your pin cushions are super cute! I got a white poodle flower pot from my MIL and was thinking of turning it into a pin cushion. Now I know how to do just that! Thanks for sharing.

  19. Well, that will bring you much joy. Nice find. I can't have pin cushions because of my cat, Opus. He tries to eat pins! Happy Birthday!

  22. What a great idea to stick a pincushion in that pink Scotty. I like your entire collection.

  23. Very cute! I always wonder what those ceramics with the opening on one side were meant for. I guess it could be a flower holder.
