My Favourite Vintage Print

I love this painting . . . it is called "Can't you talk?" It was reproduced as a print in the 1920's. I am still looking for a copy for my guest bedroom. The colours vary a lot in these old prints. I hope to find one that isn't too faded. The animals in the picture remind me a lot of my own Collie dog and Tabby cat.

Pretty Quilts

I have several pretty pastel quilts to list on ebay in October. . . . I hope to post them this week. The late 1800's Carpenter's Wheel quilt is a beauty. The quilting rows are every 1/4 inch ~ amazing.

Sneak Preview ~ Red Theme ~

It is only two weeks until November . . . so I thought I had better start organizing my reds and whites (if you know what I mean). It will take me a week or two just to photograph it all and draft the listings. I hope to have it all on ebay by November 1st. I will have a new category in my ebay store called ~ Red Theme ~

~ Huge SunFlowers ~

We plant sunflower seeds every Spring and this Fall they grew to 7 or 8 feet in height and some of them were about 15 inches across. Nice and big. The deer have managed to leave them alone for now. I expect the squirrels will find them soon.

Happy Thanks Giving ~ Canada

~ Happy Thanks Giving Canada ~ The weather is beautiful and it still feels like summer. We can enjoy the warm weather a bit longer I hope. I will try to update my blog more frequently. I have much more time for local auctions and estate sales now that my two children are back in school. This lovely tablecloth is a recent find at a local auction ~ MINT condition. Someone obviously decided it was too pretty to use. Well wrapped and put away for many years. It is currently available in my ebay store.
