Vintage Thingies Thursday




My Vintage Thingies Thursday today is on a little brighter note. Since this was the last Thursday before Easter, wanted to feature a small part of the blessed day with Coloradolady and her many VTT friends.



This is the craving on my vintage headboard. This belonged to my husband's grandparents that he never knew. Its original state was with high headboard. My father-in-law was a carpenter, and felt I would like it better not as tall. He cut the head and foot-board down to the size you see here.

This is a "Sunbonnet Sue" or "Dutch Doll" quilt that I was fortunate to obtain from my late mother-in-law. The Sunbonnet Sue block is one of the most widely recognized quilt block patterns. The design of a playful girl with a big bonnet can be traced back to the late 188s and early 20th century. Bertha Corbett Melcher is credited as a creator of the Sunbonnet design.

All these Sunbonnet Sues are showing off their bonnets for Easter.


The only Easter rabbits that will be at my house are these two yard ornaments.



NOTE:
I would like to invite all my blogging friends to visit my blog on Saturday. It is a first for me and trust the last. Thank you.

How special to have something from his grandparents. I never knew mine either and would have loved something that belonged to them.

I'm so glad you showed your SunBonnet Sue Quilt. It's a lovely quilt and of course Sue is my Favorite. When you visit me today, I did a post about SBSue last week...just below today's post! I think you'll like seeing one of my Sue's too. Your bed is a true treasure.

The Crazy Suburban Mom said...

Oh wow, those are wonderful things. I wish I had things like that from grandparents but for some reason things like that were considered old and out of date and not kept and how sad is that?

Happy VTT!

Hello meme, I have just returned home from a long stay in Florida and today I am trying to catch up with my blogging friends. You are one of the dear ones. I LOVE the beautiful vintage bed and the story behind it. The quilt is darling on the bed. Lucky you to have this handed down to you. I have made a sun bonnet Sue quilt square. Just one square though.

You have captured my interest in you Pink Sat. post. I will be there to find out the secret. Smile.

Enjoy your day and thank you for your visits while I have been gone. I appreciate it so much.

Hugs, Jeanne

Your bed has been preserved beautifully! I love hearing stories of objects that have been passed down through the generations of a family.

Charlotte said...

Love the quilt and the bed you have it displayed on. The rabbits are the best kind to have because they won't eat your flowers!

Heart2Heart said...

LV,

I simply love your headboard as a lover of things that have a history over things that are produced in mass quantities. I bet this one has quite a few stories behind it as well.

Love the Holly Hobby looking quilt as I remember the doll as a childhood favorite.

Hope you stop by as I am hosting weekly giveaways now on my blog.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat
