Treasure Hunting

I have a soft spot for needlepoint. After he married my mother, my father channeled some of his artistic energy into making lovely needlepoint pillows for their home. I have one he made for her on display in my home that says, I love you madly. My father passed away when I was 17 and I truly treasure these heirlooms.

This weekend I found someone else's treasured needlepoint tucked away in a bin at thrift store. It will be another great addition to the little vintage art collection in Beatrice's room. Don't you just love his little puffy tail. I plan to paint the frame white before hanging it.
