Look at the Vintage Crochet Blanket I found

Oops, I did it again…..

I went flea market hunting….

I came home with a vintage crochet blanket…..

She is beautiful!

 

I am loving my white vintage crochet blanket on my bed. The crochet pattern with roses adds so much texture to my white bedding. She's the star in my bedroom. www.songbirdblog.com

 

She looks so good on our bed. Beautiful contrast between the clear bright white bedspread and my dark metal bed.

This bedspread is just perfect. All she needed when I brought her home was a good soak and wash and she came out radiant and shining.

Someone, somewhere put a lot of time and effort into this one.

There are roses in the middle of stars and it all brings so much lovely texture. And she drapes well too…..

I think this blanket is exactly what I have been searching for. She completes me and my white-loving-ways. She is a dream and all that I could wish for – in a vintage crochet blanket that is -.

I want to marry her….

I want her to be my wedding dress….

I will never part with her…

 

Except…..

The man raised an eyebrow when he saw her on the bed. Just one eyebrow. But that eyebrow spoke, loud and clearly.

Something about making him feel that this was his grandmothers bedroom….

Something about ‘there is a limit to what this man can take’ ….

Something like ‘you’d better prepare the guest room’ …

I love her to pieces.

My man doesn’t.

I love my man more than this blanket (just a tiny bit more though ;-)  )

This vintage crochet blanket deserves to be loved and cherished and displayed. She has already been discarded and neglected once, she shouldn’t be put in a corner again.

So with great sorrow and regret, I have listed her for sale. Please if you love her, snatch her up and make her the star in your bedroom.

 

PS Of course this doesn’t stop me from continuing the hunt for more crochet blankets. I got to discover her and rescue her and play with her for a whole day and that is worth it any day.

 

 

Love,

  1. Beautiful – I wouldn’t be able to resist purchasing this myself. I love how you have your bed and all the accouterments.

  2. I have to be careful with my decor too, as there have been on occasion a bit too much ‘girly’ in my choices that do not thrill my husband. As you said, we love our husbands more than the beautiful things we find and must sometimes sacrifice them for the sake of our marriage ; ) Your crocheted spread is lovely and I am sure it will find a new home shortly.
    Have a Lovely Day,

  3. I wish I had the money to buy it! My husband would love it! He’s an old fashioned man and loves whatever I love. We will celebrate 53 years of marriage in July!

  4. Ah I show my age but as a teen and still on young 30 something people’s beds into the mid 70′s were crocheted toppers like this or a simpler, flatter pattern. The style was to put a vivid color solid spread underneath. My one lady friend I babysat for decorated in earth tones and hers was ecru, so she used a darker ecru underneath and pulled deep oranges and browns to her space. The other lady did hers white and had deep red underneath. Her room was the “in style” red and dark wood. But before long, the fad ended and now 40 years later, these women are now in their 70′s. The one hers was done by her Grandma who had raised her–when she was old and blind…it is a treasure maybe at her daughters??
    Makes one wonder…did she have no children? Was it her business? But in the early 70′s? The men just went along with it in these two above homes!!!

  5. Oh my, it is beautiful!
