GARDEN CONT'D

I bought this beautiful pillow from a gal who had been at the antique show the year before and I had bought one from her then.  I bought it home and it is on my bed in Chicago.  I also bought the new one home and it is on my spare bed.  I liked the ladies she used on this one.  Mine is an all white linen and lace piece embroidered to a pillow.  Very neat.  She does a beautiful job of her pillows.  The pic shows up light pink in spots bu is not like that actually.

The old album I should have passed by but could not once I had opened it and looked at the old pictures.  There are 46 pictures in this album and all the frames are beautiful.  It must have been a fairly well to do family to be able to afford all these picures.  Written in pencil underneath some say Aunt Bessie, Uncle Jon, etc.  The cover is in a worn shape.  It was a velvet I believe that has rubbed off over the years but the clasp still works.

You have a real find with those pictures! The images will be perfect to use in so many different projects. I can't help but feel badly though that the pictures are no longer in the family and have been cast aside. Such a shame, but now they have a good home.

Beautiful pillow and I can see why you couldn't leave the album behind - so much history in there.

How sad that nobody in that family owns that beautiful album. But it has ended up in good hands; I'm sure you will find a good use for the photos.
