Good Morning!  I have another quick project to share with you this morning.  A few weeks ago my friends Karyn and Carol were over for a visit.  Karyn was sipping tea and Carol and I were crafting away.  I couldn’t just let Karyn sit there and relax without putting her to work! LOL!!  A while back she made me a pretty burgundy bag filled with craft sand so that I could store my pins.  I came across this old tea cup and saucer and I thought it would be a good idea to make the bag smaller and fit it into the cup so I could decorate.  I put Karyn to work modifying the bag and fitting it into the cup.  Just this past weekend I got around to decorating it….

PinsNot too bad huh?  I pulled out my cherished flowers and lace and went to work.  It’s a bit busy but I love the end result.  Now I have a place to keep all my pins at the ready when I decide to add one to a card that I am making.  I love to re-purpose and alter things.

I hope you all have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
