Glorious Rose Cameos Edwardian Welsh Quilt

For the Season almost upon us...


Victorian Winter Cherubs Chromolith
...to the Season just past. These beautiful Victorian chromoliths will be in the shop soon. The Winter Cherubs, held aloft by a soft cloud, have wonderful seasonal accessories in the form of a snow-topped Christmas tree, a New Year's Eve party mask for the ball, trailing ivy, shells and a bouquet of roses in a lacy holder.
Victorian Summer Cherubs Chromolith
The Summer Cherubs are surrounded by butterflies, trailing flowers and ears of wheat. Whilst one cherub sits upon a bundle of hay with sickle in hand, another holds a sunflower, with a fluffy billowing cloud to cushion them.

Exquisite Detailing of Winter Cherubs Chromolith
These superb images would look fabulous set into cupboard doors or fixed either side of a grand and decorative mirror.
A Joyful Celebration of Summer
These and many more beautiful vintage delights will be in the shop very soon...

Is this the Prettiest Vintage Fabric...ever?

Vintage 1940s Sweet Peas Barkcloth
...well, of course, if you love vintage fabrics as much as we do, then the latest find is nearly always the prettiest ever! But when I discovered this lovely vintage barkcloth, I very definitely felt a quickening of my heartbeat! So, what makes it so very gorgeous?
Beautiful Colours and Dainty Trellis
Well, it's a 1940s barkcloth with the most adorable design of colourful sweet peas clambering up a dainty trellis - and oh! - that beautiful blue background is THE perfect shade of blue.
Gorgeous Texture and Design
Finally, the barkcloth weave seems to give the design some added 'oomph!' don't you think? That little extra something which confirms that this is one heck of a pretty fabric. But don't let us sway you - what do you think?
