The One that Got Away…or did it? from Jo's Country Junction

I haven’t been to an auction since Kramer passed away in June and we closed the antique booth.  It’s not for a lack of wanting to go, it’s more of a “am I using my time wisely” and a “do I really want to afford anything” that’s what has prevented me.  Also, when I know I can’t resell things if I don’t like them in the spot I envisioned them at my home, makes things  a little bit harder.

When the Unknown Surprises You! from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

As we have shared in the past, Teri and I (Kara) are novice quilt collectors. We started with a few quilts that we inherited and picked up a few here and there as we wander the antique malls—one of our absolute favorite things to do together! A few of those inherited and purchased quilts have been shared on the blog (you can read about them by clicking on the links at the end of this post). Over here in Germany, there are not many antique quilts to be found, so I have formed a habit, albeit not necessarily a ...
