What a beautiful morning it was yesterday....the sun catching the tulips by the front door as I went to the garage to sort out my new stock for the weekend.
An original scumble glaze American rocker...childs size, and a little cracket..... also childs size, so happy in the sunshine.
I was initially going to upholster the seat, but when I turned it over there were no signs of nail holes to suggest a previous cover, so I think it is going to have a new use... as a plant stand for the Fair at Rheged on Sunday.
Maybe I need a smaller bucket though....
Three old quilts, two with tiny faded prints for cutting ,
the big one was originally white and red but is now.... blue and dark red.
Someone has dyed it and surprise, surprise.... it wasn't me.
It is still an attractive, hand quilted piece however, with decorative spiked edging and would be ideal for covering a chair or sofa.
To compliment the dimity prints of the cutter quilts, this gorgeous early Victorian jug with all over decoration in soft blue and white transfer....so delightful.
Unlike Mr Fox.....
Those of a nervous disposition look away now.
A 1929 fox head, portrayed as the vicious killer...laid back ears, snarling lips revealing the most detailed teeth and tongue.
Those were the days when fox hunting was in full swing, the fox was the enemy and the taxidermist was in full employment.
Two well worn Victorian children's mugs...black transfer prints...one Winter the other Summer.
And a 1930's dressing table with curved glass top complete the "Pretties".
Drop handles, curvy legs,
And an adjustable mirror with ratchet mechanism,
Hope you all have a lovely week in this glorious sunshine....it is just too nice to be inside.
