Illustrated by Peter Spier


This is a lovely book in very nice condition. You can tell
however , that the person who owned it spent most of their time on pages 32 and 33. :-) I am a gardener and have read this book over. It has some wonderful information.
 

Thank  you

17+ Yards Vintage Natural Cotton Knotted Twisted Tassel Trim

Lovely NOS trim for bedspreads, upholstery, etc. It is in 2 pieces. One is a little over 8 yards and the other is a little over 9 yards.  It has a 3.25” drop including 5/8” of band. It appears to be in excellent condition, as I had to measure it and wind it around some cardboard
I did not launder it.

To each package, I add a little origami sachet filled with lavender buds from my garden. If you do not want the lavender, please let me know.

This lot contains 63 Needleloft yarn. 62 of the skeins are 10 yards each, and 1 skein is 92 yards. The Needleloft is 100% nylon and made in the US.
There are 4 skeins of Darice PVC Metalic Cord for plastic canvas. 2 of the skeins are black with silver and 2 are light grey with silver. Each skein has 27 yards. Made in Japan
I believe these are vintage as they are from Ames Department Store which finished closing out their stores in 2002.

Various Size Vintage Round LinenTable Doilies/Placemats/Coasters
With Hand Crochet Trim

The largest of these measures 22" in diameter including 2" heavy crocheted trim, the next sized ones measure approximately 10" in diameter including the 1" of trim, the next size approximately 8" in diameter including 1" trim, and the smaller ones measure approximately 6" in diameter including 1" of trim. They are made from fairly heavy linen and crochet cotton. They appear to have some age to them. They have no holes or stains. In one picture of the big doily, you can see tiny pencil marks used to mark out the number of crochet points needed to go around the piece evenly. I laundered this, but I do not treat stains.

Vintage Cross Stitch Card Table Cloth

I believe this is a tablecloth for a card table. The cloth measures 42" x 44" including the 1/2" of hand-crocheted trim all around. The "middle area measures approximately 18" square. It is hand cross stitch embroidered with flowers. It has no stains or holes. The speck that looks like a stain is just fuzz. I also show an area where there is a variation in the weave of the linen.

I add a little origami lavender sachet to the package when I ship a linen. If you do not want the lavender please let me know.

Yards of Vintage 3" Conso Bullion Upholstery Trim
This trim is "New Old Stock" Conso trim. I did not measure this trim (I will if necessary, but I can not guarantee that it will be as neatly wrapped as it is now). The bobbin says there are 36 yards. It does not look as though much if any has been taken off. The bobbin alone measures 27" around and it wraps around 28 times, so there are at least 20+ yards of it, not taking the thickness as it was wrapped into consideration. The trim is 3" wide. 
I did not launder it.

To each package, I add a little origami sachet filled with lavender buds from my garden. If you do not want the lavender please let me know.
