The corn is turning brown
The trees in apple orchards
With fruit are bending down.”

Old Wood & Wire Harvest Signs

I’m smitten with these tiny little signs made of old wood from my chum’s farm!  The lettering looks as if Fancey Blackett herself painted the tiny words.  Each measures between 2.5” – 3” long.  Sweet tucked in an old wood bowl filled with grass and tiny pumpkins!  Tie one around the stem of your jack-o-lantern or decorate a Halloween tree with several.  I’ve used all the little wood pieces I have so once these are gone, they are gone!

Sold individually ~ please specify the group letter (A, B, C, or D) and name of sign when ordering and include your zip code so I can calculate First Class shipping.  Thank you!

Antique Sampler: Danell Louisa Stutter

A splendid, finely stitched house sampler worked by Danell Louisa Stutter in the 8th year of her age ~ 1807.  Amazing stitchwork for such a young girl!  Stitched with silk threads on finely wrought linen in wonderful autumnal shades of gold, brown, and green.  There are some losses to the threads throughout the sampler, but it doesn’t detract from its beauty.  A large house with fences, trees, and birds dominates the top section of Danell’s work.  The verse familiar to those of us who love antique samplers is worked in the center.  Beneath the verse are two large, lovely flowers on grassy hills, a crown worked in Algerian eyelet stitch and Danell’s name, age, and the year.   An articulated border of flowers and strawberries surrounds the whole.  So much prettier in person! An overcast, rainy day did not give me the best light for photographing this wonderful piece.

The sampler is unframed and measures 13”w x 14.5”h end to end.  I have not reproduced this sampler.
