Cottage Finds: Hand-painted & Hand-stitched Treasures!

Don't you just love this blue hand-painted piece against the antique rose dishes? I found the little floral plaque at our local thrift store for $2. Though I love creating a variety of crafting projects, I also always enjoy the work of others, especially anything hand-painted or hand-stitched! And I never pass up a bargain!

The sweet cottage blue and white vintage cloth was another recent find. The flowers are beautifully embroidered with the edges carefully crocheted. For $4, how could I resist it? I couldn't, of course! I'm always on the hunt for cottage treasures such as these. That's at least half the fun!

  2. Hi Coralie! Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my blog for a visit. Nice to *meet* you!

    You and I share the same passion....old linens and old dishes. Nothing is sweeter than the old things of days gone by. My knees buckle when I find lovely old stitched linens. I love your vignette of treasures. It does all go together beautifully.

    Have a sweet day,
