Do you remember the 70's song, "Torn Between Two Lovers" by Mary MacGregor?
Torn between two lovers, feelin` like a fool
Lovin` both of you is breakin` all the rules
That's really the way I feel these days. See I love my vintage 30's, 40's and 50's but I also love primitive. How in the world do I make these two styles live in harmony in my house? It's a struggle, and the way I've reconciled it with myself is I collect what I love and deal with the consequences.
A prime example is today's offering for Carol's Rednesday, I am sharing another quilt. This is one of my favorites because I do love my snowmen. They are so appropriate this time of year, after Christmas but long before we see any signs of spring here in Iowa.
One thing I love about this quilt are all the hearts. Since Valentine's Day is our next decorating holiday, it seems a good way to transition. So, here's where my other love comes in. If you look closely most of the buttons I've used to embellish the quilt are vintage, some bakelite.
This quilt is usually in my hallway, where I have a wall quilt rack. I change out the quilts with the seasons. I had to move it to my mantel for this picture because it's hard to get a good picture in the hallway!
It's been slow here for auctions and estate sales. The thrift stores seemed to be filled with everyone's end of the year cast-offs. I hope things pick-up soon!
