Etsy For Charity & EFC team

Good Afternoon!!

I am now a member of the EFC Team. EFC stands for EtsyForCharity. It is a group of Etsians who donate items they craft to be sold for charity. Each month The EFC Store picks a charitable organization to give the money to. For the month of April it is Autism Speaks, click on the following link .

Now, I figured that I can always make another pincushion, so.... I donated my yellow vintage tea-cup pincushion for the month of April . I also purchased a jar of handmade cream from EFC Shop to show my support of a great group of people.

If you would like to purchase the tea-cup pincushion just click on the link above or at the left.

Enjoy the SunShine!!! :o)

Hello Again, Just thought I'd give you a little update on my tea cup. It is circa 1957 Pattern#9029, (this info came from Replacements LTD). They didn't have any & neither did Ebay?? At least not in the pattern I have. To bad I only have the cup, no saucer. : ( I'm not sure if I should do anything to it now or not???? It does look lonely w/o a saucer though. Well, see you later alligator!! If anyone is even reading this???
