I love the blues in these and there usually pink because you cannot have Florida without Flamingos.
Now these I have loved long before I moved to Florida. In my maternal Grandfather's parents home they had several Florida souvenir items because my Great Uncle WM lived much of his adult life in Miami and so he often traveled home and brought these. He and my Grandfather first worked in Florida building military bases after WWII. They operated backhoes, bulldozers and those sorts of equipment. So many of these type souvenirs I believe to range from the 1940s to the 1950s. This one is very similar to one that my Great Grandmother had.
This is from Silver Springs. I don't think you can quite read the sticker on it.
I purchased all these framed souvenir textiles. Not sure what else to call them! They aren't big enough for a table cloth. I love them and they are in good metal frames but unfortuntately the frames are green. Yuk....I like neutral frames. Black, gold, silver or white.
These are all green and red. I love red but I don't decorate with it any more so I will probably sell these. The next one I want to keep but reframe or paint the frame.
Again it has the great blue color.
It is a little plain. I am thinking I might try book pages on it. What do you think?
Thanks for stopping by.
