Twyla on Tuesday


Hello Friends!
I've had a busy week with cousins from out of state.
Cousins who love antiques as much as I do!
Which means I've been out on day trips 4 out of 7 days!
I'm not complaining!



One of my sweet finds is this kitty planter.





This very pretty little pitcher was just right
to hold some of my paint brushes.




I was just really taken with this little luncheon cloth
that some woman in a time past, painstakingly
cut, pieced, appliqued and blanket stitched.





She used feed sack in such pretty calicos and the
black stitching frames them all so nicely.




I really appreciate her hard work on this and admire
her crafting abilities.  It would be wonderful to know
what occasion she made it for and what her inspiration was.
I just wish she'd have had a blog so she could have said,
"Look what I made this week!"
Guess that's where I come in, showing off her
lovely work.

Thanks for visiting with me today!
You all mean so much to me!
Love, Twyla

Good Morning, What sweet finds. I love the old planters and I am fond of cats especially. How perfect to use the pitcher for your small brushes. My favorite of these is the luncheon cloth. The black stitching really sets off the cozy prints. Someone would be thrilled to know her lovely work of "heart" is being displayed here!

Sounds like you are having a wonderful visit! All your finds are just adorable...especially the kitty planter. It reminds me of Figaro, the kitten from the old Disney cartoon Figaro and Cleo.
Have a great week!
