We were sitting drinking tea in bed one morning and I reached in to the Laura Ashley carrier bag on my side of the bed and whipped out my latest vintage embroidery .
I see that I have you all hooked now………….
It is a typically 1930’s runner with hand embroidery on a heavy glazed cotton sateen in a stone/raw linen shade . This is pretty rare as these embroideries usually have a white or cream ground, but it is perfect for terrace room in France.
I have no use for a runner (as they catch dust and get stained by the cup of coffee that you inevitably put down on them) so I ask Trevor what he thinks we should do with it, not expecting a coherent answer.
” Split it in half and mount each piece individually as a wall hanging”
Above, beautiful solid wood corbels from my favourite internet site- painted cream and distressed?.. I will have to ask the Oracle.
