And now for something a little different.

Earlier this summer I saw this post on Helen’s blog (you really should check it out, she does the prettiest things). Her mother had sent her this adorable shoe pin cushion. I thought of my mom and her passion for collecting miniature shoes. She LOVES tiny shoes of all shapes and styles. She has a glass cabinet and two shelves are full of these pretty things. Whenever I go to the US, I try to buy her some. Her favorites are made by ‘Just The Right Shoe’ and are beautiful! I bought her 3 when I visited New York City in 2002 and I bought her 2 when I visited Florida last year. And friends and family know of this passion of hers and buy some for her whenever they can find them. My favorite of her collection is one that I bought her while in NYC. Click this link for a picture. It just fits her so well, being a seamstress and all :o) So, when I saw this post on Helen’s blog I knew I just had to make my mom something like that. Especially since my mother sews a lot and can always use cute pin cushions! So here is what I came up with. (you can click it for a bigger view)

Cute isn’t it? Now I am going to bake some muffins and invite my mom over for afternoon snacks at my house and surprise her with it :o)
