RETIREMENT FRAMED CROSS-STITCH
This is in very good condition with a great saying. : ) I’m not much of a seamstress but it looks like
a combination of cross-stitch and embroidery. The scene is stitched onto a muslin-like fabric
professionally framed with backing. It was framed by a shop in Clinton, WA.
Measurements: 14” tall
x 16” wide. Nice quality stitch-work.

Apple Heart-Shaped Pottery
I believe this Apple pottery was handcrafted here in Washington state
by a company that went out of business a few years ago…but
am not 100% sure. It’s lovely and in very good condition measuring
about 8” x 8” to its widest points. Signed and dated on back.

see the trees and bunny and squirrels.
Dare we say a good time
is being had by all?
This measures 12” high x 8.5” wide and is

3 ring binder style, measures 9” tall x 8” wide.
Versatile and nice recipe organizer. It’s complete with helpful kitchen information,
for recipe cards/photos, pages to write out recipes. In the 3rd photo,
you can see just a few

Terry Redlin “From Sea to Shining Sea”
America the Beautiful collector’s plate
This plate is in very good condition and is Limited Edition plate no. 14717 A.
The one draw-back is - it doesn’t have the certificate of authenticity or box.
However, if you don’t want/need those, this is an good buy. I’ve looked up
this plate on the internet and it’s selling for $28.95 up to $60. In lieu of the paperwork
and box, we’ll include a nice plate stand. Plate measures 8” in diameter.

Original lucite/acrylic art by Frank R. Albrecht, Minneapolis, Minnesota, 1988.
Canada Geese with Display
In February 1980, Albrecht began engraving on cast acrylic in his home studio.
Retail jewelry and gift stores around the country carried his engravings. In July
2002, he retired from acrylic engraving and turned his talent to beautiful porcelain art.
This piece is striking and dimensional. Unlike other works out there, this comes with
the black display piece to really show it off.
It measures.7.5” wide x 8.5” tall and 2” diameter
(on the stand).
This has its original label.
Buy Canada Goose w/ display:
This platter is 15” in diameter and it is lovely. Particularly eye-catching is the variety
of design and dimension in the background. I’ve taken a close up so you can see.
It’s in very good condition with the initials TR engraved on back. Beautiful coloration, too.

Original Irmel? Watercolor
From what little I could find, this looks like an Oregon watercolor artist named Irmel. Or could it be Dr. Mel????
Don’t know for sure, other than it’s original. Would fit perfectly inside a 16”x20” ready-made frame.
acid-free mat that coordinates well. What would you name this painting? Solitude?
