Happy new week! Don't you hate when the weekend is over?
Can't do anything about it, so might as well enjoy the new week.
I'm excited to share this wonderful barkcloth quilt I bought at an
estate sale last month. I had heart palpatations when I found it!
Mr. Retro found the mid-century bed frame at the thrift store for
$10 a few months ago. He refinished it and brought it inside this weekend.
I was excited to bring out the quilt I've been saving for this bed, now in our
guestroom. So when are you coming to visit?
I just have to share close ups of some of the fabric used.
Love oriental themes, and this one is beautiful!
Even a horse & buggy winter scene is included, with snow!
Isn't it gorgeous? I think the $15 price was an excellent bargain.
I just can't stop looking at it and "petting" all the wonderful fabrics.
Yeah, something is wrong with me, lol.
Here's a little project I'm working on for displaying some darling
vintage canning labels. Just playing here & will show the finished project later.
I'm going to display them under glass in this frame, and bought a piece of
this burlap type fabric to back them. Think it adds just the right homespun look.
The labels were purchased at an antique store in the Blue Ridge Mountains
of Virginia, where we spent a long weekend. Of course we had to go antiquing!
The graphics on these labels are fantastic, and they are in mint condition.
A bit of information came with them...
That's it for today. Did you find any bargains?
This is from today's garden walk, so I'd better get busy!
