The first time I saw button cards similar to these it was at Wilton in the booth of Kim Stout from Thistle Hill. These charming button cards were at the show this year in the booth of Deborah Hartwick of Heartwells. Kim and Debbie are friends and share a blog along with Stacey Bear called Truffle Pigs Sewing Room...
I just love the simplicity and charm of these little cards...
Deborah makes all kinds of whimsical items...pincushions, emerys, animal dolls, pillows, etc. I have bought quite a few of her little treasures at various shows over the years. The little acorn above is actually an emery with an acorn top...I have a darling little bee emery that is up at the lake house and several pin cushions too. Click here to see more of Deborah Hartwick's creations.
Debbie made this sweet pin cushion with the bird on top... I bought it at the Wilton show a few years ago....I think...or maybe it was a gift from Paula..? (I must be getting old...I AM getting older!)...The tiny red pin cushion in the sweet grass basket is an antique from my collection of vintage sewing items. You can also see the handiwork of all three of these ladies at Earth Angels... Hooray! Tomorrow is Saturday....I get to play house! :) Laura
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
