Finding Pretty


I managed to find time to stop at a sale the other day between wedding duties.  I picked up this folding laundry basket and pretty quilt.


I've always wanted one of these laundry baskets.  It conjures up images of hanging sheets on the line in a pretty house dress.  Can we bring back those dresses, please?  I snatched this one up for $4.00


The quilt is a whole cloth quilt.  It is not pieced but is printed on the fabric and then has some intricate quilting throughout.  I love the aqua with the red.  It needs a little tender loving care, but will make the perfect quilt for napping on the porch.  It was only $10.00, I knew it was coming home with me.

Smiles,

  11. That quilt is so you,m Renee. What a bargain you got on both the quilt and the basket. I love those too. My Mom had one and I'm sure she hung out clothes in one of those dresses. You did find Pretty.
