Pinning for a Remple


I had to do it.  It just need something.  The little planter pot looked too lonely.


A square of vintage fabric.  Just enough to make a pin place. 


Pinpoint vintage trim in an eggshell color.


Perfectly peachy pink vintage millinery with paper petal leaves.


Such a darling little duck to pick with pins.

I think the little duck has a secret smirk knowing that he is even cuter with that pincushion that he was before. Remple would be proud.....

Always enjoying your blog!

How many Remples do you have? I've Had about 5, but I gave a couple away (one to Sandy) as they were doubles. I don't have any that are vases though. I've got a pony, a doggie and a kitty..........I love the pony. I've been fortunate to find quite a few of them out here in antique stores, and I got one that someone threw in as an extra when I bought some other stuff on Ebay. Well, you only made it cuter, so that's a good thing. Nice job missy.

Hugs,
Meri

Renee, I had to come back and give oohs and aahs over the Halloween tree with little witch - so sweet - and your orange gingham tree skirt with matching apron. I can't think of orange gingham without thinking of you! I can't think of aprons without thinking of you! I will remember you always. PS Thank you so much for the pattern book. I am excited to give it a try! Elizabeth

So much better than an empty planter! (Or a planter with a plant, for that matter.)
