Yard Sale Chintz

Yesterday's yard sales netted me this excellent cache of polished cotton chintz decorator samples, made in England and dated from 1980-1983. I scored 38 pieces for the princely sum of $3.50. These are good sized samples, big enough for some cute cottage aprons and table linens. I have a rather long love affair with cotton chintz fabric, starting around 1970, when this fabric began to grow in popularity. Our very first couch (1974) and handmade kitchen curtains were both large-scale floral chintz fabric.

I remember your couch- navy with pink flowers- I always loved it! And I think your curtains were pink?? Yeah, I love chintz, too! Make me something out of this stuff, please????

Don't you wish we had a store like Woof n' Warp now? Is this the right name? Sounds kinda like a pet store!
