Antiquing

Mick found out about a barn sale over the 4th of July weekend. Since we were going to be in Lake Placid he made arrangements for us to go out on Friday night.
I was so excited when I found a tomato pin cushion. It is big, flat & made out of the most beautiful red velvet! What a find! I need about 5 more cushions now.
The sewing case is in perfect condition. Very unusual that I find something like this with the latch still attached.
The husband of the owner told her to throw out the drawer, it was the first thing I spotted. You can still see J. & P. Coats. I have no idea what it came out of & they didn't either. I put all my scrapbooking punches in the drawer & it's made my table much neater, "neat" as it picked up.
Just of few of my favorites from the sale. Bonnie, to bad you missed it! I thought of you when I was walking the barn.

Walmart carries tomato pincushions, but they are definitely not made of red velvet.
