Ahhh, cotton! Here's a look at the cafe curtains in my kitchen, I made them from Bemis feedsacks!! Not only do I love the rough rustic weave of these sacks, along with the patches, but the name Bemis is in my family tree, on my Dad's side!💕 .
The glass feathers were custom made by my very talented friend Emily @805glassgirl !! ....My Nana always told me that when you find a feather it means someone is looking down on you from heaven. These two glass feathers represent my parents In heaven. ♡♡
.
I haven't hemmed the curtains yet because I'm not sure of the final height on the window, so for now it's the puddle effect... And it looks like I'm going to have to find a stronger curtain rod! 😉 .

You'd have to be out of your cotton-picking mind to think I'd miss this #happy😊hoarder theme featuring COTTON! Since my early days of real cotton nappys held fast with safety pins, to the crisp cotton sheets hanging from the clothes line that I'd run through back and forth, executing a rather satisfying natural dermabrasion effect on my pink cheeks, later falling asleep to the scent that only air dried cotton can bring! My fashion sense (?) adheres to the adage of DOES IT ITCH?? and therefore wool, cashmere, any icky picky rayon or fake fabric doesn't really land in my wardrobe. No imposters need apply. My first Etsy profile as a shopper was CottonCandy! My collections of vintage textiles started with hand stitched cotton quilts and went on to pillowcases, tablecloths, towells, doilies, sheets....and on and on. Mercerized cotton string, Huck Cotton (my fave!) Cotton Gimp, Huge Pure White Twisted Twiney Balls of String in its tactile full of textures glory!
It's all gorgeous, and what could you POSSIBLY trust to safely store your glass eyes in but a bed of fluffy soft cloud-like cotton? Exactly. Just a little gory nod to the season....🍁👻 And now I challenge Pam @Pixiegurrrrrl to Not sing Cotton Eye Joe all around the house and further along in the icky factor category, I’m told that song was about an STD?! Ha!! I don’t cotton up to those types of folklore but it’s a great song any way you stitch it.

The touch... the feel of COTTON ... the fabric of our lives💀💀💀 or is it??? Wasn’t that the old commercial tag line? This week #happy😊hoarder is exploring your creative side with year 2 of the Hallmark Anniversary Chart... COTTON! I thought that these stylishly shrouded friends should play along!

If you are as old as I am, you might remember when bandanas were soft, I mean really soft. Today's "Made in China" bandanas might say, 100% cotton, but why the heck are they so stiff? So, vintage bandanas have become one more thing I've added to my estate sale checklist.
Bandanas actually have a long and interesting history in the US. Martha Washington commissioned a bandana design featuring her husband George. Bandanas have been used in political campaigns and as an advertising medium. Striking coal miners wore them as a sign of unity, giving us the term "Redneck". During WWII women tied up their hair with bandanas and got to work in factories. Over the years bandanas have become symbolic of the farmer, the cowboy, the worker, and the American spirit.

Question-Why have I suddenly become attracted to old rolls of cotton string?🤔 Whilst looking for something to finish a project, unsuccessfully I might add, I’ve run across this mini hoard. Not my usual trigger, sparkly and colorful, these utilitarian pieces of string from the past make me happy somehow.😂 I hope I’m not being tugged down the #rusticfarmhouse path😉 #happy😊hoarder #thriftscorethursday #vintagecharm #farmhouseinspired #farmhousefresh #vintagegoodness #industrialfarmhouse #junkstyle #itfoundmejunk #neutralhome #myvintagevibe #middletownantiques

I was gathering up this barkcloth fabric from the laundry line and was struck by how perfectly the colors blended in with the forest.🌲🌳 Looking forward to making some custom pillows from this gorgeous fabric, next rainy day☔️ For now I’m going to bask in the beautiful fall that we are enjoying on the mountain.🍁🍂 #thursdaycolorpop #grannyhadstyle #barkcloth #vintagefabrics #vintagetextiles #teepees #norcal #lakecountyca #cobbmountain #myseasonalstyle #fallingintofall #calihomevibes #happy😊hoarder #grannysgarden #howiboho #dopevintage #bohome #vintagegoodness #hippieslivehere #ruralchic #inmyyard #myvintagevibe #middletownantiques

Happy to have #Happy😊Hoarder back! The #Happy😊Hoarder hosts are going through the anniversary gift calendar by Hallmark and year two is COTTON. This quilt was begun by my grandmother Edythe using flour sacks in the 30s. It was left uncompleted and boxed up for decades until my cousin Deb, who is a talented quilter, was given the pieces by her mother ( my aunt). She completed the quilt using the original squares, which show as faded in the photo, as well as some additions. After she finished the quilt she generously gave it to me! She knew that I would treasure it. I didn’t want to put in on a bed because CATS, and wanted to display it, so (after some research in to how to hang quilts without damaging them) we hung it on the wall as our “headboard.” This quilt was one of the most special gifts I’ve ever received and it’s all cotton. Thanks to Dana @thisoldcapehouse Pam @pixiegurrrrrl and Christine @christinevautour for hosting and inspiring a fun tag. 💚💜💚💜

#Happy😊Hoarder is making its way through the Hallmark Anniversary gift chart and this week we are hoarding, 😐 I mean sharing #cotton. I had to think long and hard about this one. I don’t hoard textile, so I had to think outside the box and finally found my cotton hoard, books!! As in buckram, yep that’s right it’s a stiff cloth made of cotton used to cover and protect books. “Hi my name is Christine and I am a book hoarder” and since we are approaching my favourite time of year I had to make my square a bit creepy. I added cotton cloth to look like webbing, a deer spine obviously because “book spine”😏 and my #CrystalHeadVodka with candle. Candles have cotton wicks so BONUS!🙌🏻 There you go, creepy #cotton for #Happy😊Hoarder now why don’t you get your thinking caps on and share some of your hoards with us this week!

October represented in quilts: Vermont would be the bottom two and Georgia would be the top three. 😂. (Thank you, Dana @thisoldcapehouse for the #happy😊hoarder reminder for cotton this week as well.)

Swipe to see some captures of October on our day trip to North Georgia yesterday. We were super excited to see a tinge of color on ONE tree in an otherwise green forest. 😉 We will have our fall when everyone else has moved on to Christmas.

I have never seen cotton growing in the fields, where I come from we grow strawberries, corn and pumpkins. Sharing for the 2nd week with #happy😊hoarder Hallmark Anniversary chart - fun idea ladies ! #cotton #cottonstem #showusthevintage #ironstonecrushin #vintagescale #farmhousefresh #mycountryhome #countryliving #cottonvignette #simplefarmhousetouches #vintagefresh #butterpats #ironstone

“Cotton—The fabric of our lives”! Do you remember this slogan from the early 1990s? It is a phrase that perfectly describes my professional and creative life! Grab some coffee while I share my #Cotton post with you for #Happy😊Hoarder as we make our way through the Hallmark Anniversary gift chart! Cotton is the gift suggestion for a second anniversary and this week’s theme.
Thirty years ago, while on a ski trip in Vermont, I discovered vintage camp blankets. As a vintage textile enthusiast I was immediately drawn to their texture, bright colors, and stunning patterns. These old blankets had a unique history and were woven in such a way that the pattern was visible on the back in reverse. My absolute favorites were the ombré blankets, which were only made for about 10 years during the mid-1900s. In photos the ombré blankets appear almost three-dimensional.
These lovely blankets were also incredibly warm. The cotton versions were made especially for children and were marketed as a non-itchy alternative to their woolen competitors. “Beacon Blankets Make Warm Friends” was the slogan my favorite manufacturer used (swipe for images) and was the reason I recycled these blankets to create a line of children’s wear.
Suffice it to say, I LOVE THESE OLD BLANKETS! Many years, and over 1,200 blankets later, I still have camp blankets that I use in my home, and I continue to make my children’s collection from them.
If you have a love of cotton share your story with the rest of the #Happy😊Hoarder gang!
