my new old love affair


i finally got a new camera (sony cybershot dsc-h12) which takes amazing macro shots, (too bad i didn’t figure that part out till i got home)…anyway shooting again tomorrow to tighten up the pics will fine tune it i pray, so i can finally finish this article about the fleas…but the best part was that it brought me back to my favorite place in new york, my #1 most fun: the fleamarkets!! now if i could only sit and write without distraction…

I could have covered the world in fabric today! crazy gorgeous, affordable textiles from the 1600 and 1700’s. did i want to buy these? more than anything!

    What keeps the old fabrics from dry rotting? I’ve had pieces from the ’40’s you couldn’t even use. I guess maybe the weave was better?
    Beautiful photo Claudia.

    thank u! i don’t know about that, i’d guess so many things, sunlight, pesky moths, storage in the wrong place?

    Fabulous. I am looking for vintage fabric in big quantities Do you know where I can find some. I am trying to not buy new fabric for my curtains you know I am trying to be more environmentally conscious. So far none of the organic fabrics I’ve seen out there pleased me. Any suggestion anyone?
