Quilt Love



I'm feeling a bit guilty as I promised I wouldn't bring home any more vintage quilts...it was just so pretty...a soft faded paisley










a large piece of cutter patchwork......what I'll do with it I'm not sure


thank heaven for my large trunk that holds all the other quilts



In the Winter garden this week

This Week



I spied on the top shelf of a second hand shop a  big vintage flagon with a label of Lime Juice from the pharmacy dept of the Adelaide Children's Hospital for the wards.........now that would be a long time ago....and I love that it says for cocktails too! I'm thinking maybe the 1950's





Finally found a spot for it


a vase with the most divine celadon colour found on a specials table at a closing down sale at a local antiques shop

second to last rose in the garden




hey mum ...I'll have the wool wash cycle !
