A Curly Tail

Found this print of a sampler, which is Scottish and in further study found to be popular in the early 1900's. This one is dated 1917. I thought this little doggie?? I think it is, was cute and had an interesting tail. Almost reminded me of Abbie,my little chi.

sorry about the flash but this is the little creature closeup.

Found out these sampler prints were from a company in Chicago Ill in the early 1900's.
This one I grabbed at a community thrift sale in Cleveland Georgia about 2 weeks ago while in search for some kitchen utensils. I thought it would be interesting to show you the animals in this one.



  1. Interesting find! Are those bees between the flowers - I guess thistles?

  2. looks like butterflies to me, but I could be wrong. LOL
