Simple Southern Treasures....

Pair of Italian Metal Red Tulip Lamps, Italian Chandelier, with an entire Metal Bouquet, adorning it.... darling plaster frogs... early ironstone platter... vintage drapes.... 1890's crazy quilts,{ they are amazing}.... gnarly, old, old, old wooden trencher, with an applied wooden bottom, with plaster...the original bottom, had been worn completely through, from excessive use... I have never seen such a cool repair.... Oh my... Lots more to go through...Still diggin!
My Quilt images, are a little blurry... This Quilt, with all of the bright orange fabric, is actually a quilt top... It is wonderful... tho, never finished... There is also the name 'Minnie', and all sorts of three dimensional velvet florals... I couldn't leave it behind....
This dated 1890 Crazy Quilt, is complete, and a bit worn... Just like I like 'em! It is beautiful.... Lots of great embellishments, and hand painting.... It's a Beauty!
I have many sacks to go through... It's like Christmas!

My gramma had an end table like that chandelier. As I child, I thought it was tacky. Now I truly understand the beauty of that crazy table and wonder where it got to? Glad you're back. Glad you got some inspiration!
