Oi!!! That’s a dog! Or I’m losing my mind?
More points for a cat, surely. Dogs are up for anything.
Bagpuss is so lucky. Jasper would probably give her left paw for an aquarium to stalk.
A chihuahua, guarding his section of the food.
I don't fold ours. When I wash the bed clothes the bed is stripped, washed, dried and then put straight back on. We use the same set, solves the folding dilemma.
I send mine out to be washed and ironed lol!! Either to launderette or to cleaners (who take some of my ironing) I am deliberately rubbish at ironing....
LOVE LOVE LOVE vintage clothes!!
ROFL Your lovely larder has more pet food than human food!!!

My small freezer contains only basa fillets, hake fillets and salmon fillets (for the cat). The fridge is more my domain.
Well, I have been to the Range and to B&M tonight. I have a lovely new Really Useful Box to keep the cat treats in, a dustpan and brush for upstairs as now that I have litter trays up their, my rascals tread the litter across the bathroom and at 4 in the morning when I am not awake it is not pleasant under my feet. We have new bowls for the ferrets and new mats for under the cat bowls.
Yay for more organisation.
I had 10 mins this morning so cleared my table linen side board out - I’m in the process of moving linens back to the dining room where they should live (and use that sideboard for camera stuff instead).
I have realised I have a slight obsession with vintage tablecloths. I tried to be ruthless and managed to say goodbye to a about 20 so only holding on to 30 or so....
So you don't want to know that I only own one table cloth and it came from Wilkinsons then?
I don't own a single one. I didn't realise people still used them
@huckybuck do you want me to let you know when we clear my mom's lace a stitchwork linen? She used to do that sort of embroidery where you see the weave of the cloth to create a pattern and she had drawers of the stuff. I don't even know what the technique is called.
I only have one tablecloth, it was my Granny's and is a little square, complete with embroidery which she never finished before her eyesight got too bad to sew any longer. She's 90 in February
Gosh yes please.
I adore vintage linens as I love thinking about who may have used them, when and where etc. So would be lovely to see your Mom’s.
I’ve not heard of the technique but prob will recognise when I see it.
Tablecloths, teapots, china and glassware are all my downfall. Something about having history to stuff really appeals.
I could easily carry on with curtains and furniture as well but our house is a bit too modern to carry it off. I do have a couple of eiderdowns.
When I’ve tidied up I’ll take a few photos.
That’s funny, I don’t picture you in a modern house HB.
I think your tastes must be similar to mine! I'd love to see any of the beauties which made the cut!
It’s 11 years old! Not my cup of tea at all but location was great, good size garden, quiet and the layout of the house ideal.
We bought as an investment really but I’ll have my job cut out to get Mr HB to move.
Managed to alter the kitchen in parts so much more of a farm house look but still got really modern bathrooms etc which I cannot abide. To change those means ripping out a whole load of limestone and funny fossily tile (??? Travertine???) and the thought of the mess puts me off. I’d love to change them and the kitchen/hall flooring but it’s too much grief.
And don’t get me started on the internal doors arghhhhh...
I will take some photos tomorrow in the light.
Wilendur’s are my thing really.
I’m a rogue dog-chatter but I love this thread!
I’m not too bad with clutter, probably helped by the fact that I never seem to stay in one place longer than 3 years! I also tend to do a clothes clear out once or twice a year so that helps things. I’ve done a bit of decluttering over the past few weeks, selling a few things online and taking some other things to the charity shop. Plus I’m trying REALLY hard not to buy ‘stuff’! I’m craving a label maker at the moment though!
Most of my house is probably what I’d call slightly messy, but I’m particularly proud of my pjs drawer! Top at the back of the drawer, matching bottom at the front. It’s summer here now (my winter pjs are in under-bed storage boxes) and they’re organised from sleeveless top and short bottoms on the left, progressing to long sleeved top and long bottoms on the right!
I think it's called drawn thread embroidery? Like this sort of thing
Oh yes I have seen these - really beautiful and intricate work - your Mum must have been incredibly talented.
