July Silver Sunday

Welcome to the hot sticky July edition of Silver it as sweltering hot in your state as it is here in NJ?  I hope everyone has been able to keep cool.....can you believe just six months ago we were in the midst of wintry  snow storms?
patiently waiting for Spring, Summer and warm weather...perhaps a case of  "be careful what you wish for"?
Nah....I love summer, and Silver Sundays!
Last month I showed you my collection of silver sugars and creamers, dreaming of completing this project and not having enough time...well, thanks to the stuffy, sticky weather outside I eaked out a few hours and finally made some of them into funky pincushions....

Thanks for stopping by~
Be sure to check out all the other silver goodness .....have a wonderful weekend
See you next month!


  1. Oh Beth, this will be my first time participating in Silver Sunday! I was going to spend the day playing with some items since it looks like we are heady for a wet weekend. I will be making a post tomorrow.

    Love the pincushions!


  2. love your pincushions!!! stay cool, its hot here in Ca. but a least it is dry heat not humid.

  3. Hi! I found The Gypsy Fish Journal ToDay and will follow. I like this darling spot! ♣olive

  4. Love them! Hmmmm.....might just have to try one of my own.

  5. Hi Beth! Your pin cushions turned out great! I have some creamers without lids I should do this with!

    Have a great weekend!

  6. It is nasty sticky hot & humid today in CT ~ I don't really mind it though. I'd rather this than the ice & snow:) Such pretty Silvers today. Thank you so much for hosting. Your "picnic Show" is very cool BTW.

  7. Hi Beth! I adore these pin cushions in the silver sugar and creamers. so so sweet. and beatiful colors!
    Thanks for a great party!

  8. Beth, thank you for hosting this wonderfull blogparty Silver-Sunday. What a nice and very creative idea to use this milk and shugars as pincushions. I love the purple color to the silver and the lace adds a romantic touch to it. Looks like the pincushions of a princess.
    Greetings, Johanna

  18. Hi Beth,

    First timer here, for your party! I've enjoyed your Silver Sunday postings so much, I finally joined in.
    Love your idea of making sweet little pin cushions out of your silver bowls...too cute!

    Thanks for doing the "Silver Sunday" party. I don't have a great deal but I hope to play again with you next month.

    ps. ♥ your article in the magazine, too...cute photo of her hand over your mouth. LOL

  19. What a beautiful idea!! I LOVE them. Blessings... Polly

  20. Such a great idea for the use of these little guys. Thanks again for hosting this lovely event. I'm going to post my addition right now.


  21. I love your pin cushions, what a great ideal!!! I have some silver that I've been collecting and would love to join in on the fun! Have a great week... hugs~~~Daphne

  22. This is my first Silver Sunday!
    I love the pin cushions.

    Yep, it's hot here in the deep South too. I could use a little snowstorm 'bout now!


  23. Beth, the pincushions are great! And yes, it's a sticky, hot mess here in Jersey! Last week was the worst!

  24. These are just great. Makes me think that anything I made with a pin stuck in one of these would carry that little extra touch of elegance.
