A Love For Vintage

Take your needle, my child, and work at your pattern; it will come out a rose by and by. Life is like that - one stitch at a time taken patiently and the pattern will come out all right like the embroidery. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

I love this beautiful assortments of crochet,
 embroidery, applique, and quilting.
I clipped this page  from an old magazine
 years ago ~I think Country Home.
I am sharing some of my pretty vintage linen,
lace, thread and ribbon for Pink Saturday.
A page from a beautiful Needlecraft book
Traditional Country Needlecraft.
Embroidery threads come in the loveliest  colors.
I love collecting vintage pearl buttons
and satin ribbon. They look so good
in the silver tray my daughter gave me.

 I'm  joining Beverly for Pink Saturday.


  1. Hi Clara..your photos are just beautiful. I love how your pearl buttons sparkle on the silver tray.
    I hope you have a wonderful Holiday weekend and wishing you a Happy Pink Saturday too!
