If you have followed my blog, you know that I LOVE this cherry desk. I do a lot of decorating around it. It dates from 1830-1850 probably from New York state .
Of course, there has to be some cross stitch! I love those frames. I got them many years ago when I lived in Louisville, KY. There was a great craft show in Cincinnati. My sister and I went every year.
"A Birds of a Feather" design framed in a Valley House Primitives frame.
I purchased all the things on top of the desk at antique shops or shows over the years.
This little book is dated 1904. It has lots of advertising for Revere Coffee!
This picture shows my arrangement on top of an old red blanket chest we got at an auction in Louisville. It was huge bargain. The DH had gone out to get a hot dog. He came back in and I said bid!! He didn't even know what he was bidding on! When we had a repair made, the man told us it was very early 1800's or late 1700's due to the mix of nails he found.
I hope you are having a great week and will join me tomorrow to see my wall of patriotic cross stitch projects!
