Hope you have had a wonderful week and are all doing great.
Our family…we are good, we are busy, we are blessed.
I wanted to share something today that I recently found and fell in love with.
Let me start by saying that I love old handwork. I love things that were lovingly made by somebody’s hands.
I love thinking about the lady or gentleman or young person that took their time to make something handmade.
I have a thing for items with someone’s name stitched onto it and usually will bring it home if it is reasonably priced.
For example, a sweet little tea towel with the name Dorothy Howington made its way home with me from the flea market recently. My family thinks I am crazy, but I loved it and felt like it should have a home.
Ms. Dorothy’s little towel hangs from an old medicine cabinet towel bar that is in my laundry room.
This week, I found these two beautiful pieces of handstitched artwork.
I am told that these pictures were from around 1920 and hung in the same house for a whole bunch of years.
Aren’t they beautiful?
Not only are they beautiful, but they speak Truth. “The Lord IS my Shepherd”.
I love them hanging on either side of our bed.
I also want to take a minute and say welcome to several new friends of my blog. Thanks so much for coming over from Debra’s beautiful blog,Common Ground. She is such a sweet and thoughtful lady.
God bless you all!
