Historic Home 2

December 11, 2015
Hi everyone,
 Sharing the last of the pictures I took of Liz's beautiful collections.
Sorry, they are not of great quality since I used my old iPhone. 

This beautiful cupboard is full of antique Canton-ware. 
The chandelier was made by Authentic Designs.
I love the simplicity of this room.

Antique silhouettes.

A favorite!
Love this one too! What a sweet little pug!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

Historic Home

Hi everyone,

Yesterday Larry and I drove into Downingtown just 30 minutes from my home to pick up 
two antique sconces that I purchased from a wonderful seller Liz McElroy on eBay.
Liz sells her beautiful antiques at shows, smalls on eBay and also from her home.
I will attach links to her Facebook page and eBay listings.
But first I want to show you around her beautiful historic home.

This is the first room we entered. 
I love the blue chest, glass bottles and topiaries.

Cozy kitchen with beautiful walk-in fireplace, wonderful redware and chandelier. 

Beautiful painted cupboard filled with redware.

I took pictures with my phone which did not capture the 
true beauty of this room. 
It made my heart go pitter patter! 

I will be sharing more of Liz's home in another post this week.

Check out her eBay page

Hope you all have a wonderful day!!

Recently Finished

Feb. 4, 2015

Hi everyone, 
Hope you're all having a great week
keeping warm, healthy and finding time to create.

I wanted to share a few pieces I recently finished.
 The penny mat was a kit by Cee Rafuse link.
I find hand-stitching so very relaxing!
I'm now working on appliqué Christmas stockings, 
also by Cee. 
Her kits are wonderful!!!

My hooked rug Daisy is now hanging in our little breakfast room.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
Wishing you all a great day!!!
xoxo Louise

Almost finished!

January 12, 2015

 Now that all the Christmas decorations are put away
 I'm happily back to working on finishing up a few of my projects.

Daisy is a Notforgotten Farm Design
offered at Spruce Ridge Studio.

I have added the year 1852 because I think of Daisy as the special donkey 
who worked our farm just around that time.
I have sprayed her with walnut dye since I didn't have 
the darker gray that I had in mind.
She will need one more spray after she's finished and pressed.

Woodland Yuletide is a Punch Needle Kit 
designed by Brenda Gervais at Country Stitches.

My first time using Valdani threads and what a treat it has been!
Once finished I will antique using coffee.
Not sure how I will finish it. 
I hope everyone is finding peace and back to creating!
Have a wonderful week!!
xoxo Louise
