Some textiles bought yesterday, and two treats for my home!

I had a very good outing today, and found plenty of pretty textiles, one of my French sellers was having a clear out, so I stocked up on vintage cottons, and found some rather nice silky pieces. I bought some more metal braid, gold, silver and bronze. I really can't resist, I'm a bit of a magpie.

Unfortunately for my bank balance, I succumbed to temptation, and treated myself to 2 wonderful items, an Art Nouveau lamp, and a large, heavy Victorian terracotta bust. They look fantastic in my home, but the guilt of having spent a wee bit too much on myself is starting to set in!

I will be listing quite a lot of things on ebay over the next few days (ebay shop Morgaine Le Fay Antique Textiles) to try to make up for over-spending, for example, I found some really great vintage Liberty curtains in perfect Spring colours, some pretty French crocheted shelf trims from the 1920s, and plenty more. Why not take a look, you may see something that takes your fancy!


  1. She's beautiful Lois. I can see why you had to succumb.

  3. haven't had time to look properly, (I am devoting tonight to do that!) but that bust is just DIVINE and would look better in my house!!!
