I created this lace topiary pin cushion from an amazing vintage chartreuse lace ball gown, I'd have to say it dated back to the 40's or there abouts. It was really gorgeous and I hated to take it apart but is was really tattered and torn and had seen a lot Maybe too many good times! The topiary is set with in a beautiful white glazed terra cotta Italian urn. It urn its self is beautifully ornate with acanthus leaves and pineapple designs in relief. To further decorate the greens I have added little lace tufts adorned with antique white millinery flowers. A fun and whimsical piece! Can't you just picture this used to display a most spectacular array of butterfly, dragonfly or bug brooches!
