Vintage Treasure!

Oh my gosh, how sweet is this! What a great find. A vintage Vogart embroidery kit including two cotton hand towels with a stamped flower ballerina image on each, embroidery floss and instructions - all in an un-opened package!

This kit is from the 50's, and obviously from that 49 cent price tag, you know it's got to be old! Even though the set had never been opened, that didn't stop me. I can't wait to start stitching this sweet design! And while it might be a shame to not use the floss that came with the kit, I think I'll be dipping into my own stash for some better color choices. I've got quite a collection of vintage floss, so it's all good : )

I went a little crazy over on Ebay and found even more fabulous vintage stamped linens for embroidery. Can't wait for Laura, my awesome mail lady, to bring my treasures to me!!

I totally have vintage linen towel envy! I hope you show us when you've finished stitching.

Love these. I bet that tutu has lots of French knots. Those were always my favorite.
