vintage embroidery turned art

vintage embroidery, originally uploaded by ordinarymoment.

Indeed, I have a soft spot for vintage linens + embroidery. Imagining whose hands lovingly created the dresser scarf, tea towel, hankie to give to their dear ones. The time, the stitches, the joy. A beautiful, simple creation still living on for a new generation to discover + cherish. Handcrafted treasures lasting through the ages. And so I stretch these sweet bluebirds over a canvas, to be enjoyed anew as a work of art. It makes me smile.  A lot!
