Some new (old) things

Look at what my mom made me for my birthday!

I wanted a larg-ish pin cushion, and we found this sugar bowl (sans lid) at a thrift store while she was visiting, but didn't have the right colored velvet, so she packed the sugar bowl home and sent it to me with place to put pins!  I love it!

And then, there are European treasures that my sister found in the flea markets I made her visit:

I love the binoculars.  They were from an antique shop in Lyon. The case says "the opticians of her majesty"  

And I know this isn't old, but look!  Look at this beautiful, wonderful flowery printed liberty fabric that is going to become a scarf for me this winter!  Luckily there is a whole meter(!) of it (oh how I wish metric was standard) so there will even be some left over!
