lucky find


Just look at what we found at a garage sale last weekend!  The story is that it's counted cross stitch, from Italy and over 100 years old.  It's in pretty good shape- even the original frame,  and I love the beautifully faded colors.  It's hard to tell from the photo but it's nice and big too.  And I got it for a very very good price.  The onset of garage sale season...yet another great thing about the warm weather months!
