detail from a beautiful lilac chenile bedspread bought from my favourite op-shop
Neither of my daughters wanted this in their bedrooms... there was nothing I could do to convince them otherwise. And I tried. (I'm learning that just because I desperately wanted one of these when I was little I can't expect my girls to feel the same way about it...this goes for alot of the vintage treasures I find. Sigh)
A friend bought me these for my birthday a few years ago...
a set of vintage placemats...
I have two of each including The Sleeping Beauty. Like alot of my treasures these would be perfect for a tea party don't you think...
I also have some lovely C. Edwards ballet prints, these are from the 1950's and I think they would look gorgeous in a little girl's bedroom (just not in either of my girls bedrooms! These were rejected too!)
Here are just a few for you to look at...sorry but I wasn't up to taking on the scary family of Red Backs guarding the others in our shed!
on very pretty bark cloth I found recently
identical to the print above but a sweet and tiny version
And lastly something I probably dreamt of having on my dressing table once upon a time, but once again NO takers here...
Pity I don't have any ballet-ish tea towels to show you today...this one will have to do
