At last I have got round to sorting out my giveaway.....bit late (sorry) as I'm already on 108 followers! Here goes....vintage style heart shaped wire basket, 12 vintage quilt patches, some vintage lace, lavender pillow, a piece of eidy fabric, some shoe stretchers and last but not least a vintage single eiderdown cover in paisley and plain pink! Sounds like the generation game but without the cuddly toy! Hope you like it.
Sorry, the pictures haven't come out all that well.
To enter the giveaway just leave a comment, it is open to everyone, here in the UK and abroad. I'll announce the winner in a week. Onto other news, I have also been busy making giant cushions.
I bought a vintage grain sack dated 1934 and thought there was only enough to make one cushion.
As I began to cut the sack in half I realised there was writing on the inside of the back panel also and it was the same as what was printed on the front. I managed to make these two large cushions, two smaller ones from the remnants (on my website) and also two small lavender pillows.
For the conservatory I also made a large Toile and Vichy check cushion, although I will probably have to move it at some point as the sun light is so strong (when we get some that is).
I have also made this large bolster feather filled cushion from a gorgeous panel of vintage French fabric that I have had for ages. I have reluctantly taken the decision to sell it and it is currently on my website. The paws to the side belong to Hattie.
This little chap was a recent find on a certain auction site. He was advertised as a 1920's lamp for repair. He came with some dubious wiring and a Bakelite light bulb holder and an even more dubious looking peach coloured silk shade!! The wiring and the lampshade have now been consigned to the bin although I have saved the frame of the lamp shade to recover at some time. I took a chance buying him and thought he was made of stone perhaps? He appears to be made of bronze although very weathered. I am no expert on metals but the base underneath is a bronze colour and he is fairly heavy. So all in all my hunch paid off and he is now sitting safely under my old glass dome and not part of a dreadful table lamp!
Have a great week everyone and remember to leave a comment to enter the giveaway.
