As I was perusing Etsy one day, I ran across this stack of pancakes that was being marketed as a pincushion. Visions immediately began to form of how I might use it for a banner at the top of my blog pages. I contacted Jessica, the Etsy shop's owner... so sweet, to acquire permission to use it in this way, then I ordered two stacks to provide a greater impact. I spied the chicken in a Dollar Store and I immediately fell in love with her scarf so neatly tied over her head like she's off to market. An additional spark of color in the plate, plasticware, and cup... all from various yard sales... completed the look.
The pancakes arrived wrapped so prettily. Wouldn't they be so fun in a child's play kitchen at home or in a preschool and kindergarten classroom? Montessori and Waldorf School settings would be especially perfect. (They are two educational philosophies that stress the use of natural fibers and wood toys, as these type of toys promote imaginative play.) Or you can use the pancakes as... a pincushion. To order your own stacks, here's the link. There is also a fried egg pincushion that is just as cute, along with other items for sale.
