One of my favorite corners of our home is the wall of old floral pictures. Recently I found the top piece, that of which is a vintage oil painting, for $15.00 at an estate sale. It is just what I was looking for in order to complete the grouping on the wall. Needless to say, I was doing a little happy dance when I found it!
The flowers are a mix of yellow, orange, pink, green and red and blend nicely with the colors in the old wool blankets that are draped over an antique ammo basket.
Florals are carried through with the red needlepoint bench that sits below.
Years ago I found this Victorian pillow on eBay and fell in love with the little cottage in the woods. Though it has a wintry theme to it, it sits out all year long. I believe I put in the search words: Victorian Motto and the pillow popped up! So happy it did - and for only $75.00. They sell for triple that in antique and specialty shops.
You may recall that I shared with you about the little embroidered piece above (Dogs Should Be On Sofas) – you can read about it HERE.
Miss Fiona reminds me each and every day that “dogs should be on sofas.” I am looking for new sofas that would go nicely with the floral pictures, however the choice of fabrics will need to be conducive to having dogs on the sofas. Perhaps something in a tweed with a durable fabric…and definitely NOT a loose pillow back. Right Fiona?
