This piece was embroidered by my grandmother ( she says in the early 1950's ). This has been hanging in her home all of her adult life. It's been matted and framed many times and it's a little worn but to me, it is pure gold. Can you believe she gave it to me? This touched my heart deeply.
She also embroidered this table runner. I've had it for a few years but it's been tucked away in a cedar chest....I think I need to have this on display.
Now, I'm starting to notice a trend because I went to my little junk store today. ( It's antiques's etc. but my DH started calling it the junk store so it kind of stuck....as long as I can spend my time and a little money in the junk store I don't care what he calls it...lol. ) Anyway, I went to my junk store and what did I find?
2 butterfly pillowcases that match absolutely NOTHING in my house....but I had to have them. :)
Then I notice another recent purchase.
This sweet pillow hangs on the door that leads out to the garage from my little breakfast room. I think it's darling.
One more gift from Mammaw~ I think she has had these for at least 30 years. Turquoise dinner napkins....
Now, I think I may be in trouble, I'm loving embroidery!
I hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend!
