Beautiful old Pearsalls and Penelope Fibrone embroidery silks

I  really, really love very old houses and love living in one 
UNTIL....
when I'm at my desk printing out a large order from a new customer, there is a very large bang in my stock room next door.
The top shelf had fallen down with all of my files and boxes of pencils, brushes etc all over the floor.
Upstairs where my study and stock room are, all of the walls are still latt and plaster, except the one wall where the shelf was. I suppose it was just the dodgy plaster and perhaps I overloaded it.
So now I have one upturned shelf in my stock room but I have cleared away all it's contents.
Another job for hubby to do.
Thank you for looking and listening to my moans.

More vintage fabric tomorrow.

Scrapbags containing English, French and Japanese fabrics


Four pretty  scrapbags including one with all Japanese silk vintage fabrics and one with all cotton Japanese vintage fabrics. 

I've finally finished clearing our lounge now so all I have to do is get up early ready for the decorator to start transforming it tomorrow morning. I'm really looking forward to getting it decorated for me as all my married life I've decorated myself. My excuse is that this lounge is just too large and the ceiling too high. 
My house started life as three fishing cottages. The houses were all knocked into one and eventually two of the houses downstairs became an ice-cream parlour, hence the large size. the outhouses became the ice-cream factory which in the 1960's were converted into extra living areas.

Super vintage French fabric tomorrow at the Rag Rescue website.


Been busy all day clearing the lounge ready for the decorators on Monday. It's not the packing of boxes but where to put them all for the next couple of weeks. 
Any ideas?

A good selection of antique and vintage beads for your embellishing.

Sorry I missed updating the blog last night but I had been ill in bed all day. 
Feeling much better today so as usual Mr Rag Rescue was right (as usual) to suggest bed rest.

Pretty floral French fabrics


At the Rag Rescue website tomorrow

September is a really busy month ahead for me. We have the decorators coming in on the 12th so next week I have to clear the lounge and find somewhere to stack all of the boxes - problem.
I also have my son coming over for five days. He has been travelling around the world for a year and arrives at Heathrow on Tuesday from Rio. I'm not sure when he is arriving at our house but I know it will be when the decorators are here - where do we all sit?
Then at the end of the month I have my ex-husband and his new wife visiting to see the grandchildren and us. We will have to go out for a meal as the dining room will probably be full of boxes still awaiting the new carpet.

So all in all a busy month. In order to keep the Rag Rescue website going strongly and keeping up with my promise to post orders within a day of them arriving, I have spent the last three days pre-listing the next five weeks. I have taken 293 photo's and listed 190 items.

I am now exhausted so I'm off for a stiff drink. It's a good job that hubby cooks, otherwise I would be starving. Just hope we don't have any other visitors before I clean through the house.
