Liane,

Oh I agree! I once owned one, which I found at a sale at an old house in Watertown, MA. It is long gone, but not the memory of its beauty.

P.S. I love your blog, and have purchased one of your cushions from your etsy shop!

They are gorgeous...do you think if we started covering boxes in wallpaper that in 100 years they will find another "YOU" who loves them AS much?
You have a great passion for beauty...thank you for sharing Liane.

Wonderful! I especially love the stitching that is visible around the top edge of some of them.

They have great character.
