Just a few more of the treasures from last week's yard sales...................................
A pair of vintage, linen, starched hospital bed sheets. Can't imagine these being on a bed in a hospital today - Linda thought they were from a local hospital, but appear to be marked from a veterans' hospital. I would guess turn of the last century. One is perfect, the other has age stain along the top. If I can get that stain out, I am thinking of turning them into curtains, without having to cut into the wonderful fabric.Hmmm, did they have linen sheets during the Civil War?
Great old wire planter/pot basket. Too bad the 6th pot was missing!!!
Above is a gorgeous 9 patch(?) quilt top - made of what appears to be "satin" lining material. It is soo pretty, but so impractical, because I don't really think this fabric is machine washable. I would love to send this out to be machine quilted, but not really sure what I will do with it. If it ever got a spot on it, I would have to scream!!!LOL
Not sure about this pretty ribbon mesh - looks like it was meant to be a poncho of sorts- but I'm thinking it would look cool draped over a lampshade.
Some kaleidoscopes (see previous post) a signed Puerto Rican print (now hanging in my guest bathroom), and a cool Moroccan bottle.
Not sure if I showed this in a previous post- but this was from the same "haul"!!! There was just so much "stuff", I forget!!! This is a vintage hand tied whole print quilt- not the best colors - but very warm. My nephews will be sleeping under this one and another I found a while back, when they come to visit at the end of the month!
I bought this candle set (75 cents!) just to get all the "coins" scattered in it!!!!
Well, time to go clean/purge the basement - this last weekend's finds have kind of tipped the scales on me having a bit too much stuff!!!LOL Definitely time to re- open and restock the shelves in the eBay, Etsy and land shoppes!!!!!!
