How do I know it's vintage? First of all, hardly anyone embroiders anymore. The map only has 48 states, and the states are abreviated with the old spellings.
Here is New England and part of the Middle Atlantic States. There's a coal bucket in Pennsylvania. The Great Lakes in blue are great! There's a pine tree up in Maine.
I think that may be a pack of cigarettes in North Carolina. Virginia, is it Arlington?
Georgia peaches, Florida oranges, the Gulf of Mexico. Find your state!
Here's the Midwest. My state of Minnesota has a stick of butter. I don't know why, I thought Wisconsin was the Dairy State, but Wisconsin has cherries? Mount Rushmore is in South Dakota. Illinois has railroads.
Here's the Southwest, Arizona cactus, Texas rodeo.. I think this pillow is so fun!
Here is the Northwest. Of course Idaho potatoes. Washington apples.
California grapes for wine country. Not sure what the silverware is in Nevada for?
Anyway, I was thrilled to find this great Americana pillow for $20.
Happy 4th of July Everybody! Be safe!
