journey to the vintage shop
proved rather fruitful
scooped up some pale pink linens
with crocheted edging,
perfect for embellishing with my embroidery
a small hankerchief already stitched
with a small flower motif
and this gorgeously embroidered
vintage table runner.
you can see the lines where the designer had mapped out
you can still see the imprint of the hoop!
for only $5!
it was there weeks & weeks ago when i went.
and i resisted (before i caught the embroidery bug)
i don't know if i have the skills to finish it...
or if i would want to...
for now, i will just admire the handiwork...
i'm leaving new york for a week...
so i figured i'd leave you all with some images of my town
this is one of my favorite buildings.
has these lovely staircases adorning the sides
and this one down by the water:
oh what gorgeous coloring!
like it spent a night in a raku kiln,
tinted by the ashes!
daisies down by the shore
i forsee some more flowers in my life...
i'm headed on vacation.
i can't wait!
see you all when i get back on august 14th! :)
