    Love this thread. So adorable all Linda.

    I have yet to find a vintage item I don't fall head over heels in love with. Memories, nostalgia?

    I can't seem to get into the site.... I somehow got into this thread because I had an alert, but otherwise I am locked out of the VFG.

    Me, too, Jonathan. I found a convoluted way to get in, but there is clearly a problem.

    I've had trouble the last several days too. To get in, I have to hold my finger on the thread I want and then when my phone says "open in new tab" I tap it. That method works for me.

    Sorry about that, Kenn said it was the one that printed out with the postage stamp, so he thought it was the right one.

    The background colour is much lighter now - looks great.

    I just noticed you could match up the patterns - they would continue along the selvedge.

    Just found this thread and as I love all things MCM, it's awesome! I just found this curtain set on Kijiji that I'm thinking of buying it. They are 58" each 40" across the bottom and there are two of them. The seller is asking $20 for both. Is this a good size? It's hard to picture with just a measuring tape.

    Linda the Barkcloth looks great in your house. I love how your objects provide all the colour and pattern against the blank walls.

    The Mary Maxim sweater with the dancing Brave is GREAT!

    Well I know which ones I like better... Have you thought of painting the walls beige or terracotta (or any of the colours of the horses - mustard yellow or olive green)? The couch and drapes would look amazing...

    Besides continuing your 'use the collection' ethos the Indian chase drapes are a better letter IMO. The scale of the print also works better on that large wall.

    I didn't sell the other pair, the person I got this pair from sold the other pair. Believe me, if I had both pairs I wouldn't have sold the one pair! Two pairs I could have used!

    I know a lot of people are afraid of colour - but what about one wall... Tell you what -- you loan me your sweater collection for a display at the museum and I will paint a wall for you!
