Part of my philosophy when it comes to creating and decorating is to design and purchase things that I love; hence the obsession with depression glass, for example. It just reminds me of jolly rancher candy! Sparkly, lovely colours….
I DO love my circa 1891 home and I love antiques, but don’t think you have to have an old home to purchase them! We recently sold a tall, 1940s china cabinet that would have looked fabulous storing towels in a bathroom. We also have a lovely dark sideboard in our back room that we use as a bar! (I’ll attach a picture later today). We currently have a tea cart, that would make a fabulous mini bar in any room as well.
I had in mind the same thing when I began my brick path quilt last year…it’s Amy Butler fabrics and I then made a canvas to match, and a towel (for an adjoining bath) as well.
I will continue to post, mixing quilting and antiquing as I go..hints and tips to come on old home decor and maintenance as well!
