I took photos of three quilts that I saw in display cases to share. This blanket was made by Mary Radler and John Kramer of Kansas City in 1917 or 1918. It is made up of service flags. Families hung these service flags with blue stars in their windows to show that they had family members in the armed forces.
The above quilt was made by Louise Rauch Stahl in 1915 in Springfield, Missouri. She pieced the quilt using tobacco souvenirs called flannels. Coupons on tobacco were sent in to redeem the flannels.
The third quilt that I saw was probably made by a women's auxiliary in Harveyville, Kansas. It is a remembrance quilt. The men who served in the county are embroidered on the quilt.
After the museum we drove to Greenwood, Missouri for the first time and took in three great antique stores. On the way there I made my husband stop so I could take the above photo. I have seen toilets in yards turned into planters for flowers but I haven't seen sinks before. They had matching flower planter sinks!
I saw this stool made up of wooden spools in one shop. Don't you just love the crushed orange velvet cushion!!!
This is a lamp that I saw that added a quilt touch to it.
I loved this pink wooden doll furniture made in England. My granddaughter Rowan would of loved it for her Barbies. Too pricey at $149.00 for Barbies. It would outlast the pink plastic stuff though!
I took this photo above because I keep forgetting this neat easel trick with old forks.
My Grandma Ree always had a sprinkler on her ironing board. I just loved this Chinese laundry sprinkler. I left the $30.00 sprinkler on the shelf. I need the fast action of my steam iron or my handy dandy spray bottle.
We also took in the new Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones movie "Hope Springs". We enjoyed it.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend too.
