Another Vintage Sewing Shrine

I think this one is kind of fun. Very different from my other shrines. The figurine is big enough that I didn't think it would look right in a 'house'. So I got a wooden base from Hobby Lobby and stained it. the I mounted the wooden finials. They are from old flag poles from the town I used to live in. They were giving the poles away so I took them because, well, just because. The biggest one is the perfect seat height for the figure.
The buttons are vintage from my stash. So is the tape measure.
The thread spools are a hoot. They have the price stamped on them. 15 and 25 cents! That shows you how old they are!
I'm pleased with this, I think it is retro funky fun.
I will be putting it in my Etsy store.
Peace

What a hoot! Great piece, and you're right — he did need to sit "out in public" instead of be housed!
