Zeppelin + Needlepoint

Before you get too excited, this post isn't about a needlepoint vintage Led Zeppelin poster. (Although that would be pretty awesome!!!)

But it is about an awesome postage-stamp shaped needlepoint featuring the Graf Zeppelin, a German airship that flew from the 1920s and 30s. The actual stamp that the wall-hanging is based off of was a U.S. air mail stamp from 1930. Not Led Zeppelin cool, but still pretty neat!

Wall Hanging, Goodwill Outlet (<$1)
Possibly the best thing about this find was the price- it barely weighed anything, so it was less than a dollar at Goodwill Outlet!

The hubby isn't the hugest needlepoint fan as a rule, but he loves this :) Anything to do with aviation, and he's in. Don't you just love when you can find something that you and your hubby (or roommate, family, etc.) can appreciate? Awesome.



  1. I was totally fooled! I thought exactly Led Zeppelin. Oh well! It's still cool. It looks well made.

  2. Lol Emily :) Yeah, it would be so cool to find a Led Zeppelin needlepoint!

  3. I can totally picture finding a needlepoint of Led Zeppelin in those bins. :)
    I really like the one you did find, though!


I love your comments! You all are the best!
