Isn't this a lovely lady? I found her recently and got a great deal on her. This is an older piece from about the 1920's, but I think it was relatively recently that it was made into a heart shape pillow. I have her on my guest bed next to another '20's pillow that I found for only $6.00!! Both have beautiful old lace as part of the design. So pretty.
These adorable puppies are hand embroidered on an old clothespin bag. The needlework is very nicely done, but I just love the subject matter of this linen. These puppies are just too cute and I couldn't resist keeping this one for myself.
Someday, this will have a prominent spot in my laundry room. I have to do a few more things in there before I can start decorating. (Like add a sink, and put in cabinets...we'll see if that can get done in 2009)
