The latest Liberty

Thrifting today, the first time since before Christmas. Not a huge haul, some bashed up quilts, two vintage Gloverall duffle coats (still in the car) and, of course, a Liberty scarf to add to my collection. This pretty tulip scarf is unusual in that the 'logo' is printed on a pink ground.

As you may know, I only ever enter blog giveaways if I really, really want the item. This is my third time and I hope my lucky streak continues as I am smitten with this smashing cushion from Gillyflower. I do not intend to get up early to watch the Royal wedding, but expect I will watch some re runs later in the day.


  1. The Liberty scarf is beautiful.
    You are lucky to be able to pick up quilts, even a little bashed up - here good vintage quilts are like hens teeth unless you pay lots to purchase from an antique or textile specialist,or off ebay - I guess because we don't have the quilting culture through generations that you have in Canada and the US, so there aren't so many around - you don't generally just come across them.

    Thankyou for the link! I'm glad you like the cushion - good luck for the draw!
