I showed you the beginnings of this last week, and here is the finished product. This is sachet/pincushion is made of silk dupioni with a hand embroidered initial, precious silk ribbon embroidered rose and buds and leaves and a little charm or vintage button will be included all surrounded with vintage lace. I am using the Victorian alphabet from Ribbonsmyth. I've stuffed this with fiberfill and Lavender and Lace potpourri, yum! I will have to have a 2 week lead time on this item. It will probably be available quicker than that, but don't want anyone to be disappointed if I get a little behind.
Christmas items will start going up this week, as well. Busy, busy! I've had an ad out for an official Christmas elf, no responses. Guess Santa has that market all tied up!
Hope everyone has had a wonderful Columbus Day weekend, drive safely going home if you're traveling.

Hi Pat,

Thank you for the lovely comment on my blog regarding my wreath. The beads are actual 1904's Mercury Glass Tree Garland. Very delicate, but really give it the final touch.

Love the lavender sachet!!
