A few weeks back, Mom and I attended the primitive antique shows in central Illinois.
So many lovely treasures to choose from...
The antique textiles always catch my eye!
Aren't these pennies stunning! So much work!
There were so many talented needleworkers years ago...
This one was truly stunning!
I love the combination of techniques.
Antique hooked rug art
Amazing Amish stump work
I love the subject of this hooked stool cover.
Such a cozy scene!
Another lovely hooked rug
I couldn't decide which to look at first - the hooked rug or the wood carrier...
*sigh* so many lovelies
My eye also looks for folk art -
shoe forms and carving - what a delight!
such sweet birds
a magnificent cupboard
This antique flocked tree was amazing!
Would love to have it in my home!
And vignettes to get you ready for the coming season
Loved this wagon of antlers!
I'll take the entire stack please ;)
Of course you know that Mom and I didn't go home empty handed,
but I'll save that for the next post...
