Interwoven Memories - The Seamstress Collection

This gorgeous vintage satin applique was found at a local antique store here in Berkeley Springs, WV.  I fell immediately in LOVE with this and instantly saw it as an UPCYCLED JEWEL!  How wonderful to find something so rare and fine as this beauty!

I have always appreciated vintage textiles.  The fine craftsmanship and their long history.  I imagine the women who sat for many hours on their porches during those cool Summer evenings...creating...making something that they could give to their families.  The love in every weave with ~ INTERWOVEN MEMORIES ~.  

In the ~ SEAMSTRESS COLLECTION ~ I want to preserve that vintage remnant that holds a story.  Vintage lace between two panes of glass and adorned with an antique mother of pearl button and a skeleton key...this keepsake has true beauty like no other...
