A windfall

Most of my family, and my extended family, now know of my fondness for vintage, especially fabrics. You couldn't really visit the house and not be aware that there is a little bit of an obsession going on here.

This one has to be my favourite. 1950s roses on a dove grey background, and it's a ma-hoosive piece, too. I spent a happy hour or two giving it some tlc yesterday. There was also some vintage Sanderson, some William Morris designs, and this one, which isn't my usual style, but I did like the colours.

And here is a little bit more of that rosey design:
