Vintage Embroidered Kitchen Linen - Marigold Flowers - Cross Stitch Embroidery
At the heart of all marigolds is the symbol of love. They represent joy and sunshine, sadness for lost love, gratitude and protection...
One of the most symbolically interesting flowers, marigolds are petite garden growers with big-time emotional impact. Their bright orange, red and yellow petals spark visual joy and happiness. Their scent in the garden protects against certain pests destined to destroy other neighboring plants, and in certain cultures around the world, marigolds represent grateful gifts to the gods and tokens of broken hearts. Anyway you interpret these associations, you'll find love at the core of a marigold's message.

In lovely vintage condition. Clean and bright, there are no pulled threads or troublesome spots or stains. There is however one tiny pin prick hole (near one of the orange flowers) and two small very light (so light in fact they couldn't even show up in the photographs) gray spots near the edge of one of the bright orange marigolds. Both of the imperfections are very minor and barely noticeable.
