I am obsessed with vintage fabrics, I just purchased a whole bunch of remnants the other day and was pleasantly shocked to find one of them a plaid Hermes blanket! Some nut had cut it in two which actually makes 'them' the perfect size for lap blankets in our old Rover. $4 for TWO Hermes lap blankets, not a bad day!

Tell us more about that cabinet! Is that stained glass??

Love all your fabrics, especially that French monuments one. I think you have inspired me to do a post.

Thanks and have a lovely day!

Hi Irene, just divine. I adore the first bark cloth but the gold on cream polished cotton is to die for. I'd love that in a dress... I'm having a ginger beer and fresh lime juice and loads of ice. It's hot here today in Sydney. Pruxxx

Flo and Olive Vintage said...

There are some beautiful fabrics there... I am also a bark cloth girl at heart! Your work in progress is a beauty! I don't have any room left at my place for more 'fixer uppers'... I will have to finish some to make room for more!

Great show and tell, Irene! those Ikea fabrics are fabulous - not everyone's taste I know, but I find them very cheerful. Love that gold on cream too...well, love them all!
