I spent some time with some teen leadership workshop kids at a 150 year old farm house today.
The owner is a very crafty lady. I got to see wonderful quilts, paintings, crochet and embroidery work; and the coolest barbed wire horse. It was about 15 feet tall and just amazing.
All of the curtains were quilts, both newly made and some as old as 1928.
The colorful irish rose & leaf doily gave me some ideas…
I loved the crochet border on the mantle. It was made by her grandmother in the 1930’s.
The lighting just does not do this sculpture justice!
It was getting late and a storm was on the way, so it was difficult to get a good shot.
It truly was fabulous and made a wonderful vista at the end of the day 🙂
Have a great weekend & thanks for stopping by!

Quilts as curtains is actually kind of genius! I’m going to file that away in my brain. That barbed wire horse is pretty cool, too.
I thought the same thing about the quilts! I may put new curtains in the family room sooner rather than later.
