A Mother's Boquet
For If They Fall
I stripped the fabric off the rocker today. First black & white toile, then Laura Ashley fabric I used in my daughter's nursery (Cow jumped over the moon ...), then another fabric and then another my sister had put on and then some very, very vintage fabric of my grandmother's or perhaps older.
I was this close to keeping it as it was vintage fabric, but it was pretty threadbare and I tore it a bit. I decided to use the ticking I bought today. I have a deep and abiding fondness for ticking and I just love this rocker so much now! The porch has a beaded board ceiling in white and the wood floor is grey, but both need painting. Windows need painting, too, hopefully the glaze is in decent shape. My gambrel colonial needed all new windows because the glazing was falling off in pieces. Old houses need such tender loving care.
