The Pink One Or The Green One?

I would like to honor all of our veterans and their families. They sacrifice everything for our freedom! I for one will never forget. You're my hero's. Thank you.
I started my Christmas shopping. Actually...my intention is to give one of these Scottie dog pincushions as a gift and to keep the other for myself. The only problem is...I LOVE them both and I did commit to make all of the Christmas gifts this year for my family and friends!! So I guess I need to keep them both? Can't do that. Over indulgent. So I will be strong and give one of them away as planned and still continue to make my Christmas gifts.
I bought both of these charming, nostalgic pincushions from Sweet Memory Making Mom at Etsy. The detail on each one is extraordinary. Even the pretty pins were included! Scroll down and see for yourself.
Love Etsy! So many wonderful things to be had there. Which one would you keep for yourself? The pink one or the green one?

Those are too cute! I personally like the pink one best (but you can never have too many pincushions!!)

I LOVE the pink one! Now does that mean I should keep it or give it away? These are adorable. I'm going to have to check out your shop, just found out that one of the girls who has worked for me since she was a teenager (now in her 30's) is expecting her first baby! Kathy

Oh, how adorable, Amy! I don't blame you for keeping both. Who says you can't???

Hi Amy,

Wow - beautifully made pin cushions - incredible attention to detail. I guess I'd keep the pink one, even though I don't have anything pink in my house! :) Tough decision, but at least you get to keep one! :)

Have a happy day,
Zuzu

What cute pincushions - you could give both away and then you'd have an excuse to buy a third for yourself!

Hi Amy,
Those pin cushions are adoreable, no wonder you want to keep them both.

The alfalfa capsules are working still, I haven't tried pizza yet and problably won't get that brave, but I did eat a piece of a pot roast and just had a little reaction which is really good for me. Thanks so much for asking. Terry

Amy,
Under the heading ~ Little known facts about Pam ~ did you know that I collect pinchushions? Seems your readers prefer the pink. I like the green best. I'll have to send you some pictures of my pincushions! Enjoy them while you have them!
