New Items Listed on Material Pleasures

Well, I couldn't stand it...I had to play with some of those quilts I won last weekend.

1930s Vintage Quilt: Double Wedding Ring w/ Pink Back

Antique Quilt: Graphic Grandmother's Cross 1880s

1930s Vintage Quilt: Dresden Plate

And my favorite, 1930s Vintage Quilt: Floral Applique with Lavender

I also was able to list some vintage Persian Textiles from Iran and an Italian Brocade Tablecloth as well.

I have some research to do on some antique lace to do tonight. There is nothing more relaxing than pouring over lace reference books with a magnifying glass and comparing lace. I am totally serious. Something I have to do after I put the girls to sleep. I highly recommend the book "Guide to Lace and Linens" by Elizabeth Kurella. She really breaks lace done easily so you can understand it.

On a personal note, I am a stay at home mom of two girls, ages 4 1/2 and 7. Today we register the little one for all day Kindergarten. They grow so fast, I can't believe she will be getting on that yellow school come September. My older one is in First Grade, and so I don't start bragging too much, I'll just say, she is my angel. I operate my Antique Textile Business online at home so I can be with them all day. They trek with me to auctions and estate sales and help out with the bidding. They have been coming to auctions with me for the past 3 years, so they know what to expect and what is expected of them. They are good kids as long as you keep them busy (coloring, reading, video games) and well fed. Soda is a special treat for good behavior.

Until next time...
My best,
