I dropped into my favourite local gift ware shop recently to ask about the price of a quilted throw that had caught my eye. Well, the price of the throw was far more than I would have paid but they had a matching cushion that was more reasonably priced. It was white and soft pink which would look lovely in my bedroom that has a slight shabby chic look to it. So I purchased the cushion but not the throw ( I may show you it another time).
Anyway, I deviate a little because as I initially walked through the doorway of this shop I noticed a pincushion I had seen there before, that was on sale. When I originally saw it a while back, the price of it was too expensive. I thought to myself if they reduce it in price later on then I'd love to get it. Then I completely forgot about it after that. This time when I saw it again, it had been reduced by 50%! I didn't even need to think about it. I picked it straight up in my hot little hands.
It's so pretty with its gorgeous lace, velvet, and ribbon roses. I'd like to say that I made it myself but it's made by Miss Rose Sister Violet which is a wholesaler company in Australia. You'll find exquisite gift ware items from them in shops occasionally but they also sell vintage accessories to create your own treasures.

This is the underneath which is almost as pretty.
Vintage style lace.
It makes a gorgeous companion for my needlework.
I love those special things you discover on sale. Thanks for dropping by to look.
