Good morning Pinquettes, Mary Montecalvo here...
 and today I have a special project to share with you
using the fabulous Pinque Peacock button and
stick pins. These are the perfect touches to make
your project really spectacular. Let get right to it.
My BFF and I have a very close relationship and this
is a very special gift that we always give to each
other on special occasions birthdays, Christmas or
just thinking of you. It was lost for several years and no,
it wasn't me that lost it. :)
This is our silver ball that we use to hide various gifts.
 My friend Beth had polished it up but the Burgundy
tassel has certainly seen better days. I had a button left
over from the March Release and also the angel stick pin.
I also decided it was time to pull out some 3 Girl Jam ribbon.
O La La!
 ♥ ♥ ♥

I had some Prima flowers that went so nicely with
the button and ribbon that I had to use it! This was
such a simple decoration but boy is the impact
wonderful. The angel pin also adds to the
sentimentality of this project. Once I had added
the stick pin, I turned up the neddle end and added
a small fairy charm on the right hand side.
 BTW, Beth LOVED it!! If you are interested in these
wonderful stick pins (Jessica has many styles and
color combos to choose from or, better still, she
will make custom ones for you). Then you
can visit her store, PINQUE PEACOCK .
Also, you will not want to miss the April Blog Hop
where the Design Team will showcase all the new
 releases. It all happens here next week end.
I hope you all have a wonderful week and
let's hope that Spring is here to stay!
FYI if you want to hear more about my story and the
sentiment as well as the decorating process then
you can see it and read about it on my blog:

Mary - That is one very special gift "ball"! I've seen those silver balls in years past and always thought it was such a sweet idea!
I LOVE the way you dressed it up and brought it "up to date"! I agree, the angel adds a special meaning!

Mary I have never seen a sliver ball before. I will have to look into this much more. I would love to give one to my dear friend. And your add embellishment is perfect. TFS AJ-
