I love thrift and charity shops and spend hours in them. A few years ago there was a really big one in Carlow. I bought these Crinolene lady embroidery squares from there one afternoon. The shop is no longer in business.
This sampler is so nice and I am not sure if it was made on the date or if it was made afterwards. If it is original then this would be antique. Roxdorf appears in a history of Berlin from that era.
These two pillow covers were from my husbands grandmother, and are so nice to sleep on, I also have the sheets to match. There is nothing quite like laying your head on freshly starched pillow covers.
Another charity store find with these fantastic button covers.
Do you have an interest in or passion for vintage cloth or embroidery?
I am a community worker I was working full time until my cancer diagnosis in October 2013. I have been interested in crafts all my life. I am always knitting or sewing. I love the different seasonal crafts and spending time with family and friends.
