On Saturday, I went to an estate sale that was in a beautiful 1920's Spanish style home, and had the same owners for 50 years! I had a women's tea with my mother-in-law that morning, so I was unable to go right when it opened. But, I was still very lucky with my finds later in the day. This gorgeous needlepoint was on a bookshelf, covered in dust, and just waiting to go home with me!! ;)
I love the pretty colors and the green vines that wrap around the beautiful words,, "I KNOW THAT MY REDEEMER LIVETH".
Here is a close up. Isn't it so amazing!! It adds such a special touch to my home!!
I loved that the owners of this put a little typed tag where and when they bought it. So, I am wondering if they bought it in 1968 from an antique shoppe, then I wonder how old this piece is. Maybe early 1900's? I tried looking into it, but couldn't find too much. I will keep researching! Let me know what you think!
This was another beautiful needlepoint that I bought. I love the pretty roses, and it is such a sweet size!! I could even imagine painting the frame a shabby white or black?
There was no tag on the back, so maybe the sweet lady who owned this, made it!
I have some other goodies I will show you tomorrow, along with my grannies!!
Happy a lovely Monday!!
