Timeless Treasures: Elephant Showers

Elephant Showers, a house collection from Timeless Treasures, is so retro-good, I may not need to shop for vintage fabric again. Well, that will never happen, but these happy 60s-70s prints made the thought at least cross my mind, so that’s saying something! { image courtesty Hawthorne Threads } Related posts: Timeless Treasures: Elephants on [...]
