Back Home, Finished & Framed ~

We're back from Luckett's!

it was SOOOO cold yesterday...the wind was whipping about and made it even colder...
which is why you won't be seeing any pictures that I took while we were there...
yep...no pictures from Luckett's.
I came home last night & tried to download all of the pictures that I took
(Felicia can attest tot he fact that I took them, really I did!!)

BUT, when I went to download them from my camera, the were dark, blurry & a mess!
it was BRIGHT sunshine yesterday, but somehow, my camera shows dark & blurry...
maybe I was shivering so badly, or perhaps my breath frosted the lens, or MAYBE it just plain FROZE!
I dunno....all I know is I'm SUPER BUMMED that I don't have any pictures!
ok, but I do have pictures of some of the little treasures I nabbed while there...
(I took these this morn, after my camera thawed out.)

a floppy little mohair and feedsack cloth bunny, a sweet white & rusty bird finial,
a little cream pitcher (McCoy) and a flower frog with 2 Victorian calling cards...

and this!
yep...a birdcage!!!
I have been wanting a cage with a stand for EVER!
...found this chippy white one for a song! (ahem...sorry about that little pun)
It now resides in my studio, and yes, I plan on putting a little bird in there!

...here is my finished needleweaving, all framed up...
it fits nicely into this old frame that I found at a local antiques shop.
the frame has a 5" x 7" opening...
I'll be keeping this one, as it is my first attempt~ but I'll be making some for ebay & etsy !!
So sorry about no pictures of Lucketts, but if you're out this way, and wanna go, come get me and I'll show you around...but let's go in the SPRING
when the weather warms up a bit, shall we???

Bummer...No shopping photos.

Love your needle weaving picture. Can you recommend a book? I wanna try it.

I've never seen this type of stitching before but it is so beautiful. You are so talented!! I love visiting!

Katy said...

Great finds! :) so sorry to hear about your camera freezing though :( That stinks! did you have it in a holder?

Rabbit Hill Primitives said...

I love the needle weaving with the spring blossoms...they are so pretty! Is there a book you can recommend? Sorry about your camera, I'm glad its working again. Have a lovely evening and thanks for sharing....Jenn

That totally stinks about your camera, but goody-goody gumdrops on the rabbit and other great finds.

It's funny that you've been wanting a birdcage bc while I was at a local antique shop I was thinking about one myself. I wouldn't put a bird in mine though, but it would like so fancy as home decor.

I received my charm this evening. Thanks for being so swift about shipping.

Your needleweaving is amazing. I still can't figure out how it is done. :(

Nancy said...

I love your needleweaving piece! I haven't seen this type of needlework before. It's very pretty.

How sad!!! No pics! I love the frog, & the pitcher. Are they all going in your studio??? Needlework is really great!!

Your finished piece is delightful!!
