The Thursday Three- A floral theme today

DSC02947I really should stop buying stuff that does not have a definite use yet, but I saw this heavy vintage  runner-left- with the right colours for the terrace bedroom and thought it could be mounted as a panel on the wall as a great contrast to the pale pastel paint finish.

I could then hang my collection of small Edmund Dulac illustrations on it in pale frames. This would really make a feature of them.

The decorative hand-wash dispenser-right- came from the BHS saleDSC02950… and

below left- This 1940’s Dorma cotton throw has the French blue of the tulip bedroom accent colours. I plan to embroider the orangey sections in the middle with cherry red six strand cotton chain stitch, with a flavour of crewelwork & Jacobean style; I am just waiting for my colour fast mercerised cotton embroidery thread to arrive!DSC02946
