"Refreshing Little Pretties" ~ With Flowers... & Birds...

Come this time in February ~ winter begins to drag here in the midwest...  Little hints of flowers ~ "fresh"  -or- a motif on a vintage item, are a real "pick-me-up"...

GoRgeOuS Pitcher ... The subltle hint of teal blue works so well with white...  



 
I love hints of flowers on vintage items ~ especially the "Barbola Swag" on the basket...  Both the swag and basket could have been a lot more "SHaBBy for me"...


  
Look at ALL the "hand work" done on this ViNtaGe Embroidery piece!*!*!
A hint of "Spring"...


 

 ViNtaGe Tole!!!  Love this chippy bird candle holder with leaves...

    My grandmother (Busia) always embroidered flowers & birds on the edges of her pillow cases. I did her ironing on Saturday mornings and loved ironing her pillow cases. I can remember watching her embroider so beautifully with her old hands. And then she would crochet a delicate border along the very edge ~ all the way around the opening. Once she embroidered my big orange cat onto a pillow case for me and stitched "Willie" beneath it. I wish I still had that pillow case. Amy
