Also part of this haul were the basket, the glasses, and a set of 10 beautifully scalloped cut-out embroidered napkins. The decorative balls were not part of this purchase.
I picked those up the day before at a yard sale less than a block from my house. There were nine, but two rolled off the table as I was setting up for this shot. Darn! But still a deal at seven for $2.50 and that included a the red glass vase that contained them.
I had to take a close up shot of the napkins to show off the cut work embroidery. They had a price tag of $15 which really was not bad for 10 napkins.
Also included was this framed print.
Artist: Mary McColl
I googled her name, and if I have the right Mary A. McColl, she was born in Ontario, Canada and lived in Missouri. She is known for landscape and still life. I am hoping to discover more about this artist but for now I'm just going to enjoy her work.
I have always thought it would be fun to win one of those shopping sprees where you get to keep everything you can throw into a shopping cart in 60 seconds. This was my version and I have to tell you it was rather a kick.
