Vintage Thingie Thursday

It's Thursday again and time for another vintage thingie! Last weekend was the first Victoria Market Days of 2009, and of course I was there. Wasn't really planning to buy, but sometimes you find something that just has to come home with you...........



This time it was this little vanity bench. The top is covered with an old quilt piece that repurposed into upholstery fabric. Normally, I don't like the idea of cutting up old quilts, but this one is a little threadbare and machine pieced and quilted so I can live with it. This one wasn't a fabulous bargain, but at $20.00, still not too bad. Anyway, it's cute and I can always use it for something (?), maybe to stack folded quilts on........

  7. The perfect place to display your quilts, great idea. I too struggle with cutting up old quilts but I think the makers would rather they are used, re-purposed, don't you?
