Vintage Crochet

I saw this image on the amazingly talented LeeAnn Yare's facebook page. It came via House to Home and suggests transforming vintage crochet throws, which can often be unevenly coloured, by dyeing a sophisticated shade. I'm all for upcycling, taking something old and breathing new life into it, and I think the black throw looks stunning in this room.

It also struck me how similar it looks to our range of bedlinen and cushions on Cush & Nooks. The cushion covers are available in cotton, linen, and satin, and a lot of the designs, including the pillowcases, are available in red as well as black.


  1. thanks for your lovely comment! so pleased I discovered your blog. your selection of images is fantastic. love the cushions. Happy new week to you, Vic!

  2. Ok, this is the best idea ever! I might just have to give this a try! I adore the bedding too, the pattern is so beautiful!

  3. So funny because when I saw that first picture I thought to myself, 'that looks just like the lovely linen Vic has in her shop' and then I scrolled down...ha! Great minds think alike and all :) Hope you've had a great Monday :)

  4. Fabulous idea ... the vintage crochet throw is beautiful and works so well in that room ... and your linens are divine Vic!

  5. What a fun idea- and it really does work perfectly with your pillow covers!

  6. Isn't that room gorgeous - all that panelling?! The cushions are lovely Vic. you have some great things in your shop and always great to find something different in NZ...and online (my kind of shopping)! A x.


It's lovely to hear from you. Thanks for your comment. Best wishes, Vic xxx
