The velvet on this 1950's boudoir chair has faded to almost dove-grey now, but just imagine what it was like when first made, in this electric sky-blue!
The papering of the walls is still going on....and on....and on.....
A new acquisition is this wicker basket on wheels, designed I think to keep baby things in. The inner 'tray' which is ruched with a dainty rosebud fabric lifts up to reveal a lovely lined interior, the rosebud fabric again appearing in the base.
These little leather shoes are the most gorgeous colour aren't they! I've put one of Angelica's shoe painting cards next to them.
A few Valentine's Day cards; one an original Victorian fold-out card and the other two are replicas of cards from the 1920's which I make. The little boy in the combinations is picking the petals off a daisy, and underneath it reads, 'she lufs me, she lufs me not....'
The blushing girl with the pink bow is saying, 'I ain't nobody's sweetheart yet'!
This necklace by Louise Taylor-Bowen is made from dyed vintage lace with pretty pink pearls and shells stitched on.
Happy Days everyone! Spring is coming!
