Quirky Collections

I recently came across this photo from Country Living’s website of a pickle jar full of old tomato pincushions. I couldn’t get the image out of my mind for days.
So, I began collecting vintage tomato pincushions. I picked up a few at the second-hand craft store (yes, there’s such a thing in our area, The Legacy in Sebastopol.) Then I started scouring eBay and Etsy for reasonably priced ones. And within a week I had my collection. Ok, sort of a cheater-collection, but I have a thing about instant gratification.

I even found a fun pickle jar for 5 bucks at the antique fair last weekend. So now I’m overflowing with darling functional produce and so many ways to display them!

Do you have a quirky collection? I’d love to hear about it!

And speaking of pickling, I thought I’d dig up a post from the past that I did for my guest mom stint on the Design Mom blog, enjoy! LINK
