At the flea market on Sunday, I came across these elegant shutters. Aren't they so neat! I have been looking for some small old window frames, and when I saw these, it was love.
Here is the back side. There are little rods on the top and the bottom, and I am hoping they pop out somehow. My plan this week is to replace the yellow fabric with some pretty rose fabric. I am thinking of doing three different fabrics, or just keeping it with one. Not sure yet, I will have to play around.
I also had some great luck with pretty vintage tablecloths. There is one vendor I always go to because they have such great deals, and then I came across a new vendor who had hundreds of hankies, and tablecloths. I had to say no to the hankies, it was very hard, but they were a little pricy. The tablecloths on the other hand were such a good deal, and in beautiful condition.
I am already thinking ahead for fall and Christmas. These will all become some pretty vintagey tea towels! The pretty pink one will be coming to the shoppe soon!
There is one vendor that has boxes, and tables all piled high with vintage linens. This is one is a favorite to go to, and it is always so hard not to take all of it with me. I bought three beautiful table runners, some pretty doilies, and a cross-stitch and embroidered "God Bless Our Home". I just adore the middle one with the cross stitch rose. Cross-stitching a rose is on my project list, so these are a daily reminder and inspiration for me!
Here is the pretty runner on my table. I just love it! Such work and detail went into it.
I was thinking of framing this, but then I thought how sweet it would look as a mini quilt to hang on my wall. The pansies are so pretty! Happy Wednesday...hope your day is lovely!
