Peek. Bought. Handmade.
Today, as part of our new series called Peek. Bought. Handmade, we take a look at one of the handmade pieces decorating the home of Al and Caroline of beyondtherockz. Thank you so much, Caroline and Al, for letting us peek at the beautiful embroidery from Waterrose that's now part of your own collection.
"Before the very first day of school, my grandmother had already introduced me to the beauty of hand embroidered work. I love going through my grandmother's old steamer trunk of embroidered family heirlooms, and every now and then I find myself adding something special to the collection. Hand embroidery brings back fond memories of my grandmother patiently teaching me her favorite stitches. Memories of her and the time and care that goes into this work touches my heart, and I love how it actually ties to generations of woman in my own family."
"Well, one summer day last year I found myself visiting Waterrose's shop. I hadn't been by in a while, and I do love visiting and admiring Rose's work. She had added a new piece, and in this one she had transferred a page from an antique book onto linen, free embroidering Queen Annes Lace. I bought this treasure immediately, and you can see it on my living room mantle in the photo above."
