I hope everyone is having a wonderful Super Bowl Sunday. I'm not a football fan but I am counting the minutes to 9:00 PM; I'm hopelessly hooked on Downton Abbey. Have you seen it? I'm not a big TV fan at all but I have to admit I have not missed one single episode. I was having so many problems with the internet service out here that I wasn't able to post very often last summer and these are a few things that I found during my spring and summer treasure hunting.
I picked up two of these watercolors at an estate sale one day during my lunch break. I was able to contact the company that framed this one; yes they are still in business since the 1920's. The lady that I spoke with was so nice, I described the lable and she was delighted to tell me that it was indeed one of their early lables and advised me to open the back to see if there was more information on the artist. I haven't been able to bring myself to do that. It has never been disturbed since it was framed and I like that the original backing is in tact. Should I ????
I found this little framed cross stitch at the thrift store for .75, I will painting and destressing the frame to give it a little primitive character.
Blessings to all.
