As Lindsey told you in her last post, we had a wonderfully fun Saturday. We have exhausted all the flea markets/antique malls in our area so we decided to branch out and get adventurous.
I ask Lindsey that morning what she most hoped to find and she said vintage cards. She was not disappointed. When she finds ones that she knows appeals to me she is generous and shares them with me.
When she found this one she said, ‘Here’s one for you.’
Most of the cards were owned by a lady named Hattie. We were able to learn much about her from her cards. She had written on the back of each card what gift was given to her by the person who gave her the card. For instance it would say, slip and pin or sometimes a dollar amount, usually $3.00. We discovered that she broke her foot once and had many get well cards. Also that she reached her 80th birthday because we had several of those cards. We felt like we'd made a new friend.
I found Lindsey this old embroidery pattern and gave it to Lindsey for Easter. I thought I would share one of the graphics with you in case you’d like to copy it and embroider it for yourself.
I started embroidering as a young girl and love that sort of thing. As I get older, I find that is harder to do some of these crafts. I would love to do this one, a knitting poodle is a hard one for me to pass up.
Of course the sweetest part of our day was just the time we spent together. It was a blast. In all we found seven unique shops.
This planter is one I already had. I didn't get a new one this weekend, but this one is so sweet I wanted to show it to you.
I hope all of you have a wonderful week! It's been a pleasure to spend a little time with you and would love to hear from you. Twyla
