The sun is shining! I've been taking pictures for the new shop and having great fun with that, until it came time to photograph the yo-yo's. Wow, it's just hard. Like you know how photographing a window is hard? Kinda like that. Just hard.
Aren't they beautiful though? I hope you will enter a chance to win these lovelies by leaving a comment at the end of this post. A way to celebrate the opening of May Berries Vintage. Thank you for a warm welcome yesterday, it really is a lot of fun for me over there, and crawling around under tables at flea markets.
Several thoughts about the woman that made these are in my mind, what she intended for them to become. How she would feel knowing that there is an entire community of women today swooning (I hope you are swooning) over her delicate craftsmanship. Her fabric choices are so sweet. But were they choices? Or were they all that was available, scraps left from making her children's clothing?
You are entering to win two yo-yo samplers... each is 15'" square and they are hand stitched together. The fabrics date to the 1930's -1940's and are cotton. They could be stitched to a pillow front, framed and hung on the wall, made into a doll quilt... who knows. I will draw a winner Friday afternoon, hope you play along!
