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 [...]

Daily Swatch: Psychedelic Week

Daily Swatch: Psychedelic Week

Mod shard Alps silk, from Retro Age Vintage Fabrics‘ Etsy shop, $24.99/yard. This is a genuine 1960s pure silk, manufactured in Italy for the European couture market. I’m not sure this is really “psychedelic” — or if there’s even an official definition of the term — but the eye-popping blacklight-poster-esque colors do it for me. [...]
