I went to Goodwill this morning, looking for a pretty tea cup. I want to make a pincushion and want it to look something like this.
I also was thinking about getting two tea cups, ones that would stack on top of eachother so that I could put safety pins in the cup below.
Here’s what I found.
Six white tea cups, all with their original Crate & Barrel price tags on them. I got two at 99 cents each. They stack perfectly.
And then I found this little cutie while I took a look around.
It’s very small, probably about the size of a jewelry box. It’s completely untouched wood. It needs to be painted and finished, and was just calling my name when I saw it.
- How should I decorate it? Paint or decoupage, or both?
- What am I going to do with it?
- Keep it or give it away?
- What would I put in it?
What fun questions to ponder. A neat project and lots of creativity for $3.50. Yay!
