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.

I love the horsey
