Tarnished Silver and Pink

I finished this sweet pincushion. I added Silver German Glass Glitter to the pin tops, in time they should tarnish to match the Old Silver. There are 3 snippets of vintage lace. Beautiful white and cream shell buttons. I added this to my ebay

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!
Laurie I received the red birdie that I won from your give away.....I am so excited!
It is way beyond beautiful!
I was going to display it in my cherry kitchen BUT you won't believe how perfect it goes with a lamp that my mum gave me that her mum gave her for a wedding gift!
I am very honored to own another one of your precious birdies!

Again thank you with all my heart!

The only thing more gorgeous than that utterly fantastic, perfectly tarnished silver cup is the little birdy you've perched on top! Sigh......
