New purchases at The Cloth Shed today, a lovely Victorian patchwork quilt that has been loved so much.....
that it has worn away at the edges, revealing another pretty fabric underneath.
And for this Diamond Jubilee Year and all things regal,
A beautifully embroidered picture on linen celebrating the Queen's Coronation in 1953.
I love the way the horses and carriage run diagonally and the large crown is just wonderful...
A few more pieces of small furniture have also been given the paintbrush treatment....a display stand with two small drawers and a Scandinavian inspired chair,
Another large embroidered picture...
This one depicting a vase of delphiniums.....wool embroidery on a coarse oatmeal linen panel in it's original frame.
And finally, a quick re -arrange in the hall because I am in a "grey / blue" mode at the moment...
The French shelf is all change....
Blue and white spongeware, old keys and a Georgian print,
"Potatoes, full weight !"
Published 1812, by S&J Fuller at the Temple of Fancy, Rathbone Place.
I just love the naive charm...... and the mad dog pulling at her skirt!
Enjoy your week between the showers,
