Bloggy swap partners

The lovely Ada Bea from Vintage Sheet Addict organised a crafty swap on her blog in Jan/Feb to help spread a little cheer in these gloomy months. I was lucky enough to receive this fabulous rainbow of vintage wallpaper pieces and some lovely vintage fabric. Thank you so, so much Ada!

It's hard to choose my faves - there are so many! I adore vintage wallpaper. The background for my blog is actually a piece of Ada's wallpaper - isn't it just fab? I have mounted some big pieces to mount board to use as backdrops for my photography - you can read about my trials and tribulations getting this to work in an earlier blog post: The magic of Mod Podge.

Ada has the most amazing collection of vintage wallpapers I have seen in the UK. Do go have a browse in her lovely Etsy shop.

I still haven't decided exactly what I'm going to do with these. One idea is to wallpaper the back of some shelves in a patchwork fashion to showcase some of my vintage china and other goodies I've collected along the way. What do you reckon? What would you do?

I swapped some postcards, prints and other goodies with Ada. You can read about it in this lovely post on Ada's blog.
