In addition to sharing her collection, Carol and her husband brought some wonderful things to sell. For sale there was an incredible amount of silk and cotton fabrics, buttons, and tapestries as well as many table runners and other ready-to-use articles. I did a little shopping and ended up with these silk pieces (on the left) and an eight foot long table runner in gold, red and black. I may over dye the silks to bring them all into a compatable color range but the table runner is perfect for my newly cleaned off dining room table and will complement the Japanese wood block prints I have in there.
I think I said before that you would jealous of my purchases. Are you? Now I wish I have bought more silk pieces. There is always next time!
