One of the things that I enjoy about vintage fabrics, besides their cheery prints, is the ability to entirely change the look and mood of a space. I think of individual pieces that I have in my collection, and I get a sort of craving for them. A bit like you would for, say, chocolate ice cream, or lemon pound cake. Once you get the idea in your head it just won't go away until you indulge the whim.
I get that impulse for this vintage rose runner at least a couple of times a year and go looking for it. It's the sort of item that stands on its own. In fact, it really only blends well for me with a white background. It's as though it wants all the limelight. So once in a while I let it have its own way. . . .
So that's what's on my table top this Tuesday.
I hope your week is starting out sweet!
