The Good, The Bad and The Ugly revisited


Today I'd like to show you a couple more stick pins that I made last week that will be put in the Etsy shop.  These are whoppers, a good 5" long, and would make a lovely statement on a hat (surprise!), a lamp with a fabric shade, holding a shawl closed, or in various other applications.

See what I mean?  They're LONG.  Now before you say "and they're bent, too," actually they're not.  I moved the lights this way and that, but the appearance of a bent pin is strictly an optical illusion.  Darned lights.  These babies are as straight as an arrow.  A good one.

Got the lights right on this one.  Go figure.  Maybe because it's gold and photographs differently than the silver one...

OK, these were the "good" of my blog title.  Now for the bad...

And the ugly... (come on, you know what's coming.)

What I want to know is, how on earth did she get it all out of the waste bin without tipping it over?  That takes a special talent.  And I don't care what dog experts say, some dogs just KNOW when they've been a baaaad dawg.  This earned her a trip outside for a time out.  (Yes, she was forgiven - how could that face not be?)

Thank you for joining me, and I wish you a day full of cuteness, guilt-ridden or not.


Both stick pins are available in my Etsy shop here and here.
