Welcome to my blog. I'm probably very much like all of you who love the needlearts. My life revolves around family, friends, home and all things that help to make for a more contented life. When time allows; cooking, gardening, decorating, and collecting are my joys. I look forward to sharing all of these things with you. I also hope to keep you up to date on what is going on at Homespun Elegance, in regard to the needlework designs and the "Plain & Fancy Wares" that we offer.

Wishing you "Many Happy Stitches".

Something For Someone!

Good Afternoon Everyone!
If you read my last blog post you know I went to
Luckett, VA on Saturday to their wonderful Spring Show.
I didn't buy much, but did pick up a few things
that I thought someone would love.
I love this and, of course, considered keeping it
myself, but if you could see my house you
would know that I do not need anything else.
This was labeled as a child's tin lunch pail, but
I immediately thought, what a neat stitching
pail.  It is adorable!  Note the the heart shaped
part of the handle on the side and the neat lid handle.
We just don't see things like this anymore.
It is worn and loved.  I would suggest cleaning
it and putting a nice coat of wax inside and
out.  If you only want to display it, I wouldn't
do anything to it.
It would also make a wonderful flower
container.  I love using things for flower
arrangements that would never have been
used that way before.
Anyway, here are a few views.  
Measurements ~
7 3/4" wide X 4" deep X 4 1/4" high X
6 3/4" high including the carrying handle.

Asking $30.00 + shipping!
I take Paypal, Visa, Mastercard, and checks.
Hope someone loves it.


  1. I think this would make a great make-up caddy on a vanity. For all the crap I use, I would need a bucket.

  2. oh sandra - you could design a hallowe'en sampler and attach it to the pail's side...what a great treat Bucket that would make!!

  3. Morning Sandra,
    What a darling lunch container - your ideas of what to use it for are perfect!
    Blessings on this Memorial weekend.
