Impeccably executed, this charming, vintage “Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep” piece is ready for you to frame for a baby nursery, child’s room, Sunday School class, religious school room where naps are also taken, day care center, or other place where this gentle reminder of the Lord’s watchful care will be most welcome. Just think of how much work the original maker put into this!
Rendered in sweet pastels on a natural, unbleached background, the embroidery features an angel at the top of the piece flanked by stars. A surrounding garland of flowers for the whole piece is in the shape of a heart. Children at the bottom are kneeling in prayer with a Scottie dog and a squirrel nearby as bluebirds fly near. Also embroidered are tulip rows, a sleeping person, crosses, water, the sky and clouds.
Perfect for a baby shower gift, a Christening gift, or for a Confirmation gift.
SIZE: 14.25″ high bny 13.5″ wide.
FIBER: Natural linen, cotton and silk embroidery thread.
CONDITION: Excellent overall. The fibers and threads are all wonderfully intact. There’s a slight bit of discoloration running through the center of the background (very slight). It may come out with a good soaking.
SUSTAINABILITY: ALL my packaging except tape is 100% re-used. Your invoice is available digitally in your account. I source vintage items and resources either as they are, or to upcycle into new products, giving them a new life. This reduces demand on current resources, preserves history, and keeps valuable items out of the landfill, all of which asks just a little bit less out of our ever-giving Mother Earth. Etsy buys carbon offsets for all shipping, which is a win-win for the sustainability-minded shopper.
Everything from a smoke-free and pet-free studio.
