Textiles..... Fame at last!!

Much excitement at Washerwoman HQ this morning! I have just braved the early morning rush hour down to the paper shop to collect the August edition of BBC Homes and Antiques.

The reason for my enthusiasm is that some of my fabric stock are featured in the article on mid-century textiles. This is all thanks to the lovely Kiera Buckley- Jones who I met at the Bath Vintage Fashion Fair a while ago.
 Thank you Kiera, it is a super article!

If anyone is reading the blog for the first time (and as a result of the magazine article) a percentage of my textile stock can be found at Dairy House Antiques. At present I have curtains from the 1950's, 60's and 70's there, as well as a selection of French Textiles.

Wow that is phenomenal news I am so happy for you!
I don't know if I can get that magazine here in the U.S. but it sounds very prestigious and should lead to many more invitations from other magazines. Happy Day!

Michael came home with the wrong magazine, however he didn't have his suitcase packed because it had an article that has just the kitchen layout that I think my Mum is looking for 2 show the builder. However if he doesn't get it right tonight...........
Wow what an offer for you, well done Lizzie x

I spotted it was you - H & A was full of bloggers this month. Have you seen Beach Bygones - link in my sidebar? I managed to call in at DH when I was there a couple of weeks ago and your stand was lovely.
