Day One--Antique Samplers

If you know me or have been reading here any length of time, even five minutes,this is a pretty obvious and easy to guess love of mine, antique samplers. I don't know what first attracted me to them, probably many things, the history, the handmade crafting of them, the colors, the verses. I never tire of seeing a sampler whether antique or newly designed but the antique ones fulfill something within me. So I thought it was appropriate to start Day One of my 100 things I like in 100 days project with something obvious and a subject most here can identify with. I think they speak for themselves.

That's how I feel about antique samplers; they draw me in for so many reasons: as magnificent artwork, as craft, as a connection to the past. I'm also moved by the fact that they were created by young girls, and I feel a connection, perhaps irrational, to those children.
