Vintage Girl Gets Vintage Quilt

We had a lovely weekend celebrating both my birthday and Father's Day. On Friday, we drove to Sutter Creek in California's Gold Country and drove to Ironstone Vineyards for a Sheryl Crow concert. The concert was beyond wonderful and Greyhair will probably be blogging about it today with pictures here. On Saturday, we trolled around the area and did some wine-tasting and antique shopping. I wandered into a shop called The Victorian Closet and was bowled over by the huge number of antique quilts.

I spotted at least a half dozen that I'd like to have brought home, but alas, I didn't want to take out a second mortgage on the house.... I did find this lovely baby quilt made in double pink and browns and it came home with me. Sweet. I'll give you a little eye candy of some of her other quilts, so have a great day!

This blog could be more exciting if you can create another topic that everyone can relate on.

Thanks for the good words,Ladies. I've had 2 comments like this lately and I think it is a robot because they both came from some kind of lottery site that looks like a scam. It is a small price to pay for the convenience of not having word verification, so we'll just have to =)live with it. No worries. -

Oh Jan, these quilts are so yummy!!! Thank you for sharing. Naturally I'm giggly since you mention pinks and browns and I've been working with those colors as you know. Cosmic, ha? Funny.
