Isn't it amazing how fabric (especially vintage fabric) entices us to abandon the sensibilities of the definition of "more." It's comforting to know that this piece has found a loving and appreciative home!


I would have done the exact same thing! Linen does that to me.


Oh... love it. The fabric, story and especially the crazed junker part. I hear you.


Too funny, crazy junker, but what a find. Looking forward to seeing the whole project. xox Corrine


My heart raced just reading your post. Those kind of sales are so much fun, Charlotte! I'm so glad to hear you went back.

Why didn't you call me to go to the sale with you? I know, I were just helping me...but still!

I love these kinds of sales but haven't been to one like that in ages. I really love what you're doing with your fabric scraps, Charlotte - thanks for the peek!

Yvonne Welty

It's hard to find sales like that anymore. Wish I'd been there for some quality junkin!


Ah, the magnificent vintage would have found any way to call you back for the rest!

Colette Copeland

Instant love! I'm glad you took it all away with you; sometimes it's good to be a crazy junker!! xox
