Hand Embroidered Dresser Scarves
Earlier this week I was looking through my collection of dresser scarves, to select one for the top of my dresser. I only recently retrieved my dresser from my mom's house, time and weather had prohibited us from collecting it sooner.
I really do love dresser scarves they add such a "homey" touch to a bedroom. I have a few antique dresser scarves, and then three that I hand embroidered in my single days. Each one had been carefully tucked away in my hope chest.
Currently I have the mauve embroidered dresser scarf on my dresser. I was hoping to place the coordinating blue embroidered scarf on Adam's dresser, but since he has his 1929 "Pa Kettle" radio displayed there I thought it best to wait until I had some clear vinyl to protect my handiwork. For those of you who have watch the "Ma and Pa Kettle" movies, Adam has a radio that looks just like Pa's radio that seemed to always play "Hold That Tiger". Thankfully Adam's radio does not have that problem. : )
I certainly had fun embroidering these three dresser scarves. On a quiet Sunday afternoons it was always a pleasure to work on my current embroidery project, while sipping a cup of tea. And now I am so pleased to have things I have made sprinkled throughout our home.
And to close I'd like to share a scripture that I would often reflect on while working on projects for my hope chest. In fact I taped this scripture to the inner lid of my hope chest the day I purchased it.
'"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."' Jeremiah 29:11
