Broken ladies

I got this parcel in the post from Ebay - a group of broken vintage china pincushion ladies. Not sure what I'll make with them yet, but I think they're lovely. There are stylish flappers, demure Victorian ladies and cute little girls.

Just a short post today, as my back is still playing me up and I can't sit at my desk for more than about 15 minutes. It seems the china pincushion dolls are not the only broken ladies round here!

Those broken ladies are SO wantable. I dont know what I would do with them either, but I would just keep getting them out and looking at them. I daren't even go on E Bay and look, I have weaned myself off it recently. X Cathy

I think they're lovely. My friend has some and bought one of those tables with a glass centre bit. Put wallpaper in it and then layered the ladies under the glass. It looked terrific.
