mattresses – September

I noticed the other day that WordPress is now inserting ads in ‘free’ blogs, like this one, making a mockery of my ‘Ad-Free Blog’ banner. I don’t know what ads show on my blog at the viewer end, maybe if you see an ad you could let me know. I cringe to think. I don’t know what I’m going to do about that….maybe switch providers? But are there any ad-free no-cost blog platforms anymore? Possibly not.

Anyway, September was a terrific month for spotting vintage textiles on mattresses, which is one of my hobbies. Yes, I like to find, record and gaze at old textiles. I know it’s a little strange but it makes me happy. These ones were spotted around Palmerston North and the Wairarapa.

& If you’d like to join in the fun of finding and recording vintage mattress textiles, there’s a bunch of us over on Flickr HERE – you’d be most welcome! 🙂

  1. I love all these amazing designs , it would be a shame to cover them with bed clothes , and I wonder if they all end up in homes?
    no I haven’t seen any ads come thru on your blog , please keep us updated if you do more research…

    1. Thanks, Shelley!

      It’s very tempting to repurpose some of the more stunning mattress fabrics, but I’ve never bought one just for the fabric because I don’t want to deprive needy people of an affordable bed!
