Well I'm back......to share with you another indulgence of mine...this time it involves my love of old furnishings and an old meatsafe cupboard that "I just HAD to have". I dont know what possessed me to buy it as I have no room to put it, nor the ample budget required to allow such a purchase,....but alas....it now graces my home!
I thought it would be nice to store my vintage quilts......well ....as per normal what I think and what I do are two completely separate things and my new (but really old) meatsafe has now found a home in our bedroom, which has undergone a huge facelift just to accomodate it!!!
Up until Friday afternoon our room was on the "prim" side incorporating a collection of my old treasures, a prim patchwhork quilt and a gorgeous old distressed cupboard.....but not any more!!!.
Now....they do say that a change is as good as a holiday (and lordy be.... how I need a holiday!)....so I literally dragged out the old cupboard and heaved and shoved in the "new old???" one...lol. That set me on my plight to give the room a look to match it's new addition....so now instead of housing my vintage and prim quilts, as intended, my new (old) cupbord is now home to my stash of "pretty pastels", which had previously been popped away in a dark recess never, I thought, to see daylight again!
Uh-oh....so you know what that meant??.....yes indeedy.....a trip to the fabric shop where I spent a lovely hour or so up to my unmentionables in reams of fabric of all sorts of pretty and pastel colours. Yessss....ME!...the primmy/prairie loving gal.......buying more rosy, flowery (dare I say it "Girlie") accents for my Prim home????....aggggh....I think I need to lay down...lol.
Till next time
