Re-purposing Vintage...


There is lot of re-purposing of vintage and forgotten fabrics going on in my creative space. For instance, cast your eyes on a re- purposed scrolly Vintage Tablecloth...



... a re-purposed blue and white charity shop remnant on my favourite chair...





...and my favourite,  two re-purposed serviettes with beautiful 1950's red roses...


I have so many linens and gorgeous fabrics that I have collected over the years and now is the time to bring them out of their cupboards and drawers and use them. They deserve to be shown to the world.

Have a wonderful weekend :)
