My Recent Charity Shop Finds

You may already know that I love writing about my blog and my sense of all my posts is about the way we like to live and it is always about vintage lifestyle.
And my theme for today is about vintage embroidery and recollecting vestige moments that had beautiful impacts in family homes “once upon a time”

Two days ago, after I had been at home for more than a week, busy preparing and sewing some beautiful goodies for Summer season, I thought it was time to get out of the house and have a walk down to town.  And plus having in mind that I would surely find some old goodies for my website.  

I happened to look into some charity shops and these are the embroidery finds I found to share with you in my blogging post today.  Vintage decorating is my passion and blogging about it is also a type of self-medication that keeps my mind going about what I am writing.

Hand-stitched embroidery is one of the oldest ways to decorate types of textiles.  I would imagine many embroidered pieces were family heirlooms before they even became collectors’ treasures while other types of embroideries represented the best of other culture’s and their traditions

I remember in colonial days, girls were very much encouraged to learn how to do embroidery, from embroidering flowers, leaves, vases, and baskets, as well as landscapes to sceneries and animals.  

I remember growing up in a traditional home with everything shabby and vintage, my mother bought me lots of fabrics and I was a very keen embroider.  I still remember using old biscuits tins to store my pieces of fabrics as well as my embroidery threads.

I hope you have enjoyed reading this post as much as I have enjoyed researching and writing it.  There will be more “Once Upon A Time” posts coming soon.  And Thank you for stopping by today.
