Thrifty Picture Find #2


 
I came across this picture in the summer.
I saw the black frame first.
Black always makes me take a second look.
 
 
When I pulled it up, I just thought, "Ahhhh".
A young lady,
 sitting at the spinning wheel,
hand-stitched,
in black cross-stitch.
 
 
Finding a place for all my wonderful picture finds
is always a challenge.
 
But pictures don't always have to be hung on the wall.
They can easily be tucked in with a vignette.
 

 I have the picture sitting on an old singer sewing machine table,
leaning against a small vintage ironing board.
 
 
I added a few Fall touches.
A small white ceramic pumpkin that I purchased at our local grocery store.
A handmade primitive pear that came in a set of three,
can easily be tucked in.
 
 
 I made up this Fall candle with the glass jar purchased at the dollar store.
The mason jar was attached to the bottom piece and had a lid on it.
It's much easier than gluing the two pieces together!
 
 
 I added some mini pumpkin pods and set a glass votive inside.
I love the look of a candle and I have them throughout my home.
 
 
I think she looks pretty sitting there.
For now.
Soon, the Christmas décor will be coming out,
and she may go into hiding for a little while.
 

But for now, she is sitting pretty with the other antique and thrifty finds.
 
We just had our Canadian Thanksgiving this past weekend.
It was a beautiful sunny and warm weekend.
But the weather has been changing.
More Fall like.
Cool outside and cozy inside.
 
Sending warm and cozy blessings to you,

  2. I too Love black and have a hard time not picking things up just because of color. Looking at the vignette, I see her skirt actually looks like a large pumpkin, I think she fits in perfectly. Love it all! Blessings, Cindy
