Open Door Policy


Oh how I wish I had all these beautiful quilts to choose from to keep me warm tonight. I love the idea of the Armoire with the 'open look' doors so you can see everything inside. I must get round to doing this one day. Meanwhile I would love to steal those slippers, grab a blanket and read a book. But with so much happening today I will be lucky enough to read the takeaway menu tonight for dinner.

  5. Somewhere along the way, a big section of my quilt armoire was commandeered for the tv. Aaaargh. A good case for a flat panel to go on the wall, yes?

  6. I love that image. I covet an Amoire but my little brick is too tiny sadly to fit one and myself at the same time. Perhaps I could get a baby-sized one? And how glorious is the tutu? xx

  8. Absolutely lovely. I would love to have so many quilts to choose from.
    I'd probably become obsessed with trying new bedding combinations endlessly, but there are worse obsessions to have!

  10. Okay, it took me awhile to get past the pretty little dress and the outstanding hanger that displays it, and also the footboard (I think it's a footboard to a bed?) in the foreground, before I could even notice the slippers and quilt on it, nevermind the armoire and the beautiful quilts it is housing!
    Exceptional! Thanks for sharing!

  12. Gorgeous. I've started collecting a few quilts [vintage lookalikes] and would also love a cupboard like these to display them. Pretty pretties!

  13. I have that issue and how I have longed for an armoire full of beautiful quilts like those too. Such beautiful colours. The lady made them all herself!
    It's a cold rainy winters night here too. Keep warm :)

  14. Hi, Simone! Oh I love that look, too! I can't imagine having so many great and colorful linens just sitting there! ♥

  15. O.k., organization is my downfall. It would be quite amusing for all to see inside my linen closet...not so pretty.

  16. I completely agree!
    I too want this many beautiful quilts to choose from and there's something about a quilt that makes me want to cuddle up with a good book.

  17. I could take any of those quilts... love them! And love to have one folded at the end of the bed. I have a very worn out one from my great grandma that I can't bear to part with.

  20. You'll have to share with me...by the way, how would one know if they were looking at Barkcloth? I may be sitting on a treasure trove of the stuff! Kind regards, Lisa.

  31. Oh how I've always wanted an armoire like that with whitewashed chicken wire in the doors to show off all the quilts (which I want more of) and vintage table linens (which I can't stop buying)I would store in it! And, I have no idea where I would put it - but I want it!

    Great photo!

  33. Beautiful image but more so your thoughts about celebrating the beauty of our collections, large or small they deserve an opportunity to shine.

  34. Love the photo. Must've missed that issue! Thanks for stopping by. Yes, AU is too far away to shop at our Little French Flea. I'll be sure to post pics from that day, though!
