Mystery Sampler Border is finished!

I finished stitching the border for the With Thy Needle and Thread Birds of a Feather Mystery Sampler last week! Whew! That was a mouthful! I loved the colors and the flowers. I will get the second part tomorrow and hopefully start stitching on it again. The snippet that I've seen of it shows an alphabet, tree and birds. Can't wait to see the whole section!
So, here's my sampler so far:

I picked up a couple of stitched pieces from the framer recently. The first is a Blue Ribbon freebie called Little Blue Bungalow. I think the plain blue frame complements it so well. I love this piece and it was alot of fun to stitch!

Next is Valentine Rose by Blackbird Designs. I showed this previously and still is the only Anniversaries of the Heart that I've completed so far. I picked the brown frame to use for all of the designs so will pop them in and out.

Lastly I wanted to show you my latest treasure! I found this sampler at an antique show called Bottoms Up, which is only open the first weekend of every month here in Kansas City. We went for the first time yesterday and were impressed by the quality and prices of the antiques. This piece is from the '50's so not very old. However, I like all of the little motifs. It does show you want glue can do to a piece! Wish I knew its history!

Does anyone recognize the design or have any ideas of who designed it?
