More HoopLa with Simple Pleasures Embroidery

In 1984 a stitcher named Lora spent a good deal of time embroidering the floral-hearts design and expertly stitched the words "Simple Pleasures are Life's Treasures".  Years later Lora's hooped needlework found it's way into my collection.  For several years it hung on the wall or was displayed for sale in one Junktique Booth or another.  Finally it came to rest in a basket of vintage embroidery. 
 While I am in the HoopLa mode, I decided to give Lora's Simple Treasure a more fitting frame.  So, out of the vintage lace and doily bag came a perfectly fitted mauve lace doily and piece of very vintage lace edging....just the right aging color to match Lora's embroidery.
Thank-you Lora for stitching your name and date (top left of center) on this "Life's Treasure"
It has given me hours of Simple Pleasure.
I hope it will do the same for someone at my September First Saturday Booth.

    1. Yep, I like doing the 'AmpingUp' thing. If it doesn't sell....I'll keep enjoying it.
