Anyway.... I did find another flat box that came from my side of the family shoved in a spot, and found this dresser scarf set. I think that's what they were called. They were all starchy stiff and a little stained. I threw them through the wash with some Spray and Wash, ya know, what do I have to lose! I did put vinegar in the water to help the colors from fading. They turned out beautiful. I ironed them with a little spray starch and they are a fine addition to the dresser and nightstand of our spare bedroom (my daughter calls it "her old room" after all, it was hers for 18
These I believe were my paternal grandmas. Her 1st birthday picture, 1902, sits on this dresser. The dresser came from her also and Sharon from Sweet Repose hand painted it. (Check out Sharon, her work is awesome!)
Janet Steele, 1902, 1 year old.
This is all hand stitched and the colors match the Geraniums perfect!
I got this little nightstand from Sharon and she painted it to match the dresser. The little scarf fits perfect tucked on the shelf. (It was made just for that spot oh so long ago)
