I adore vintage samplers. I’m not sure how vintage this one is but I LOVE it. It will be pressed and framed for my studio. The photo with my hand is for size reference.
I am a feminist from way back and have always tried to live this motto. It was also something I instilled in my daughter. You can be pink and feminine like the flowers here but sometimes you have to be hard as wood like the brown in the lettering.

This could be more vintage than you think…never underestimate the process of imagination. I'm absolutley sure there was once a woman who imagined…'how better this country would be if only I could vote'…food for thought!
So true Dotti!
Around 1900, a feminist writer (Hedwig Dohm) explained: "If women are the weak gender, and men are so strong, this is a good reason why men should be lumberjacks, but women should be university teachers."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedwig_Dohm
It sounds like feminists have been fighting for our place in the world for a long time. Thanks for reading!
