Shannon Finds Needlepoint Goodies

Stained glass door, Fayetteville, Antiquing Clarksville. Barbara 172My friend, Shannon, lives south of Benton and is always finding great stuff at sales I know nothing about. The other day she texted and sent pictures of not one, but 2 bell pulls. The strange thing is that they were 2 exactly alike. Why would anyone make 2 bell pulls exactly alike? Did she have them hanging in the same room? They had the initials J. S. in the needlepoint. I got them for $22.00 each. The weird thing is that if you don’t do needlepoint you have no idea how long it takes to do and how much money it takes buy yarns, then, stitch,  have it professionally put together and buy the hardware. A normal bell pull will cost about $250 to make.  Maybe Brian would like one. The funny thing is I have made one with similar Victorian women on it. It hangs in my dining room. Thanks, Shannon!Stained glass door, Fayetteville, Antiquing Clarksville. Barbara 174Stained glass door, Fayetteville, Antiquing Clarksville. Barbara 171bell 1
