Monday Musings- Things you find

  Wild beauty berry 

   Today I spent several hours going through some boxes that were still sitting around.
It is amazing what people kept and never used.   I found many interesting things, including some beautiful ladies handkerchiefs.  Never used, still in the boxes with the gift tags.   I wonder why they were never used.  It is like finding old photos of relatives,  but not knowing who they are.

  I also found some old pillows that are not in the best shape.  They are crewel worked embroidery and really detailed.  I am trying to figure out how to save the embroidery by somehow backing it with something.  (But I don’t know what) 


      here is a close up of the crewel work

 
 
 
and that was my day.
