These Paul Revere Colonial style fabric pictures go w-a-y back. My mother-in-law has always liked Early American. These Revolutionary War panels are stitched, and puffed with batting, to show off the detail in the fabric print. Mom called them Yankee Doodles. The matching frames are maple, and have little eagles centered in the frame.
She saw them in a store in a small town west of Chicago, where they lived. She saved her pennies from her very strict household budget to be able to purchase them.
They've always been around, says Jim, his entire childhood. They must be nearly 60 years old. The print is still as bright as can be. Mom gave them to us early on in our marriage, and they still remind Jim of his childhood home. It's fun to know the background of these pictures.
Penniwig, I know that you're going to flail me for taking such a lousy picture.
