What I did this weekend

I spent the weekend at my mother’s, and decided to go up into the loft to see if I could find my old Barbie dolls.  They seem to have disappeared without trace for the time being, but I did find a little cache of fabric from the fifties and sixties as well as some pieces of Laura Ashley fabric.  I love these prints.  They would have been better if I had ironed them, but perfection, as we know, is the enemy of getting things done.

First, this pretty print which is slightly different in the blue and the pink:

And on the charming folkloric theme, I found one tiny piece of this print featuring a folk art type horse:

Then there were some great fifties style florals:

And a happy sixties-looking version, which is a great design for sunflowers:

And this lovely print which I think might have been curtains:

Then some very bold prints which have a very modern feel to me:

As well as a quintessential vintage:

And finally, a really stunning photo print which could have been made earlier today:

Not quite sure what that waffle thing is in the background, but the glassy cherries are irresistible, as is the blueprint quality.

And very lastly, a large chunk of one of my very favourite dresses when I was a teenager:

I can’t wait to see what this lot end up in, and I will keep you posted.
