Every squash blossom has its own story, but how many can boast having its own stamp? Well, we happen to know of one – and it happens to belong to someone within our very own DDR sisterhood.
As is often the romantic tale of a squash finding its soulmate, Linda Chorney came to own this iconic piece through a fortuitous find that felt like fate.
“My husband used to love to take me to Santa Fe, and that’s kind of where [my collection] started building,” Linda said. “And when we couldn’t go there, he started to look online; that’s when we started to do a lot of online auctions, and that’s where this squash came from. It came up in an auction that didn’t really have a lot of other Native American things in it; it was kind of a sleeper, and I thought maybe I had a shot at it. And lo and behold, I got it. It’s like it was meant to be.”
