It’s no good, I must trim my collection down. I am furnishing a modest village house, not a chateau ( though, thinking about it, I could easily do that !)
The problem is, I have been collecting antique and vintage textiles and lovely decorative pieces since I was fourteen. Over time, some of my treasures have been passed on as gifts or sold when I run out of storage space or cash.
An itinerant lifestyle does not lend itself to collecting big-time, but as my life has become more settled (who would have thought it?) the collection keeps expanding.
I bought my first piece for the French house before we had even completed the sale – well if you see a pair of French designer curtains in an Osborne & Little fabric that scream “tulip bedroom” to you, in a charity shop in Cradley Heath, why wouldn’t you buy them?
AND they fit…..
I now have almost enough to fill the house stored in every cupboard and the garage both here and in France so I thought , as we are now best blog buddies, that you would like a peek.
