Seven Days of Positive – Day 83

In Curtains, Homes, Interiors, Vintage on December 10, 2014 at 5:20 pm

Look! My new (old) vintage Heals curtains are up – the ones I got in Lewes on Day 75.

I’m absolutely thrilled. They (or it, there’s only one) look even better than I hoped.

While I was taking these pictures – or attempting to – I developed a whole new level of respect for interiors photographers.

It’s so hard getting all the things you want in and not accidentally getting a bit of lamp shade in the corner.

It’s particularly tricky when there are numbers of mirrors involved and after taking a few shots I then realised had my butt, or grimacing face reflected, I was reminded of this legendary photograph from the early days of eBay.


  1. You’ve got a little Parisian thing happening there Maggie….trés bon!!!! I wouldn’t worry about a little reflection…could’ve been interesting…and anyway your pink reflection complements the room beautifully! Ciao, Robyn

  2. sausage and beans for tea, shudder.

  3. Well your curtain looks awesome. The fellow in the other shot, not so much…

  4. You must be thrilled Maggie – that curtain looks the business.

  5. I kind of remember those curtains from back in the day. Love them. Made me smile re the ebay pic

  6. Well I am feeling tres French chic interiors. I have a stool almost identical to yours, the tapestry (done by my grandmother some 35 years ago) has a green background. White stool with the same little gold swirly bits. Just wait until I point this out to my husband…….
