Stash of peach and red

My stash of peach and red vintage pieces and fabrics is growing. I always gravitate to those colors when shopping vintage.

My stash of red gingham cotton has been sitting around awhile waiting to see where its home would be. This parrot comes along from an antique store in Arkansas and lands on a pillow edged in, of course, red gingham. To go with the pillow are quilted reversible placemats and hemmed cloth napkins.

Then, I stop by a lovely antique mall in Paris, Texas and find great pieces of vintage embroidered dresser scarves. The peach one was so nice that I decided in order to justify cutting it up, it had to be for something “special.” This 16″ square pillow cover has extra detail to frame the beautiful embroidery and a hidden zipper in the back making the cover removable. It is hand washable.
