My sister and I have been busy going through my mom's attic, getting her house ready to sell. I really felt it was overwhelming at first but all the hidden treasures have been really exciting. I took apart a vinyl covered pillow to find two lovely brocade satin pillows, they were perfect on our antique bed. They went great with my grandmother's satin quilt at the end of the bed. I've had it since I was ten years old, it is so comfy.
I thought I would show some photos of our bedroom with the pillows. I found the bedroom suite at an auction years ago, I didn't even know if it was a double bed when I bid on it, lol. The marble topped wash stand we bought when we were first married. There is a photo from the far corner of the bedroom that shows my vintage metal bathroom cabinet, really like it to store old perfumes, soaps, glasses and drug store bottles and other old items I have saved and collected. The two pictures over the marble wash stand are cloisonne pictures I had to buy a suitcase for to bring them back from a trip we took to China.
There were also old trunks and suitcases in mom's attic that no one else wanted that I've stacked in my sewing room, they were filled with vintage upholstery fabrics and seventies hand screened linens and bark cloth, so perfect now for designing purses or pillows. Fun!
