I woke up to a beautiful snowfall this morning.
I can’t remember the last time it snowed this early in November in east Kentucky. We usually don’t get snow until December. I took these photos through the window because it was too cold to go outside. The temperature stayed around 30 degrees today.
Now I’m really getting into the holiday spirit. A cup of hot coca and a roaring fire made for a marvelous morning!
You may recall some beautiful vintage toile curtains that I bought in Provence this past spring.
You can’t tell from this photo, but there was yellowing on the fabric in places and the lining on the back was in need of cleaning.
I purchased some Restoration wash from Amazon and decided to give it a try. It comes highly recommended for antique/vintage textiles.
Here is one curtain panel ready for its bath. I don’t know why my photos today make the toile look more raspberry pink than what it actually is!
And here it is soaking in the tub. The directions said to soak it for twenty minutes then wring out the water and soak it again in a fresh batch of water. You should have seen how yellow the water was in the first tub full! I’ll let it soak overnight. I can already tell a difference. Ha…now it looks red! Who knows what color I’ll end up with.
I’ll let you know how it goes. If it works well, I’m going to wash all my vintage toile in Restoration.
Here’s to more snow days.
