A Stitching Sampler!

June 17, 2017

Happy Saturday!  Here Stitching Sampleris a unique piece that has more than its share of sentimental value.  This is a needlework stitching sampler that was done by my grandmother (Naomi Peplinski) and just recently gifted to me by my late aunt (Shirley Withbroe) who just happened to love anything strawberry.  A wonderful keepsake that I will treasure forever.

Still Life!

September 8, 2014

Here is one of the latest paintings that has been added to my collection.  I acquired the painting last August during my visit to Green Bay, Wisconsin (to see my Aunt Shirley).  I discovered that this particular still life was actually painted by another one of my relatives (a great aunt) many, many years ago (the exact year is unknown).  She was a nun (Sister Valeria) and painted this piece while in the convent.  What a wonderful discovery that was in need of a home . . . I am always glad to oblige when art is involved.
