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.

Your stick pins are wonderful! BTW LOL

This was like reading a mystery, I saw the photo and knew who dun it. The stickpins are stunning! So beautiful. I could definitely see those in a beret or scarf for sure.

That's a guilty face if ever I saw one! LOL

These pins are really special, Shea. The first one reminds me of the Red Queen from Alice In Wonderland. You choose some very beautiful beads and accoutrement. :)

Your stick pins are gorgeous Shea! We had a brindle boxer - those first couple of baby years! Ours once got into a box of fabric rocking horse ornaments I had done...came home to find them tossed all over the house! Hope you are having a lovely summer. Hugs

I think your stick pins are fabulous! PS: I knew as soon as I saw the trash, that you must have a dog...(or dogs)....I have three rescues and they LOVE to go into my trash...they steal things from my craft room all the time...!

Love them to pieces, but they are little devils...
