Bright red tulips decorate this tray that expresses the deeply loved wish for home.  Truly a contemporary expression of a popular old theme.  Young girls embroidered this small colonial style home on samples during the 1800's and you can see many variations of these houses on items from colonial times.  The wall painter, Rufus Porter, decorated many a colonial home with charmingly simple scenes including these stylized trees and houses.  An enduring tradition that is just as delightful today as it was popular then.
