Yesterday, when we went to Springwood, I didn’t expect to bring home any vintage bits and pieces, but these followed me home.
It doesn’t show well in the photo, but the basket has a lovely soft green wash over it, really pretty. Don’t you just love the price ticket – recycled old “Admit One” ticket. I was really happy to get a harbour bridge doyley, as they aren’t often seen. The cloth at the back is a sweet little throw over with violets on the corners. I think I can see lavender sachets from this. And how about a great big roll of bias binding. It is poly cotton, but will still be fine to use on bibs.
I was also given these vintage patterns. The lady they came from is in her 70s, tall, slim and very stylish. I can just picture her in some of these outfits when she was younger.
