The Thursday Three- Three colours : Red (Trois couleurs: Rouge)

An early Thursday Three as tomorrow is shaping up to be a very full day.

20131013_151935Today’s gems have a red theme. First we have this piece of fabric which amuses me enormously, just look at the two grumpy birds! Looks like it should have  a little speech bubble (suggestions welcome)

It is by GP & J Baker, a UK firm  who have been creating iconic prints since 1884

As well as this fragment, I have another on which the previous owner has lovingly embroidered each flower and bird in matching coloured wools. I cannot decide if it falls into the kitsch category but I like it and am planning to display in dining area.

Right-  a small linen mat with handmade lace edging and embroidery. The deer image is an iconic Art Deco motif and could date it but the style distracts me slightly. It doesn’t “feel” English   anyway.DSC02848

Last of all we have this red linen mat with simple white embroidery, which cost me 5p  many years ago and has been waiting for the right room and the right use for decades! ???????????????????????????????
