Gosh, I wish I knew what draws me to these little needlepoint cottages.
Maybe it's the handwork. . . .
Maybe it's their age. . . .
Maybe it's how sweet they all look clustered together in their own little neighborhood. . . . .
Well, whatever it is, another one got me. This little cottage was just delivered yesterday straight from ebay. I know it's not very spring-y, but it still has a sweet appeal. (I often find if I buy off-season on ebay, the prices are much better. Have you tried that technique?)
It's not very big - about 5" x 7".
Isn't the back of the frame interesting? I've never seen picture wire attached quite like that. Was it a make-do? Was it supposed to be like that?
Well, no matter, it is too sweet and I'm glad it's home with me.
What new treasures have you picked up lately?
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you know how much your comments delight me!
