A Find For ME!!

I was so excited today! I had to go restock my booth in Charlotte this afternoon so I hit a few of my favorite shops along the way. Lookie what I found! This adorable old antique handmade Scottie Dog quilt! It is precious beyond words. Now for those of you who don't know...I have a real Scottie Dog and her name is Ally.
I am not one to collect all kinds of Scottie stuff just because I have one BUT this was a total exception! I fell in love with it right away...the faded browns and the white background fit perfect into my decor, espicically in the living room. I needed a good pick me up and this was it! I have been smiling every time I look at it. Sometimes it just takes something simple like this to raise you spirit.
This little quilt must have been meant for me because the gal in the shop told me it has been there since March. I was the right person today. Still smilin...............! :0)
