    I was just going to change the title on the old post but couldn't figure out how.

    Anyway. I finally got them up and filled.

    I thought the pincushions would take away from the back ground but it didn't if anything they almost blend in . I decided not to paint the other shelf since there is other wood in the room . I may change my mind later. :-)

    Just a suggestion...if you worry about earthquakes. My SIL had a piece of glass cut to the size of her display and glued velcro to the corners to attach the glass. She now does not have to worry about breakage and a plus.....no dusting!

    Ok do you know something I don't . Va Beach has earthquakes TOO ?? I have already had to deal with snow , Crazy winds, and smoke . lol
    But the no dusting part sounds good.

    That is a great way to display pincushions. There are so many cute patterns for pincushions available, but I thought I would never make any, for what to do with them. Certainly not use them! But here is an idea that could easily change my mind!

    Oh my goodness No. Almost all my pincushions are vintage. From the 30's - 50's I think. The 2 shelves on the 1 walls are animals, a lot of lusterware (glass/porcelain). the others are the silk with the little men around the outside, and a few misc. ones I have been given. I have yet to make a pincushion. :-)

    Looks really good. You are the first person that I've seen on here from Va Beach. I've seen a couple from NN. Did you feel our earthquake. I work on the 6th floor of CHKD and felt it. EVMS evacuated thier hospital; Norfolk General
