Old Embroidery



A bouquet of an assortment of colorful roses created the quirky and unusual centerpiece. They are placed in a floral, water-filled 'ring' that is set upon a cake plate. It's covered with an antique embroidered doily I found at a thrift store recently.

  8. There is just somethin' about french knots. I love seeing them. :) I have an old dresser scarf (is that what they are called?) That has beautiful flowers made with a bunch of french knots. I love it. Maybe I will post it sometime on my blog.
    Take care,

  9. I am glad to see that you are treasuring old embroidery. It has so many hour of love in the stitching. Someone put themselves into it with care.
