Weekend Finds

We usually buy with an eye towards resale or with only an appreciation of a design or work (also called impulse buys.) This weekend, we bought for our new Hampshire home. We look for an evidence of hand, a patina gained from use and history, and a love of form. Here's what we found (and love):

Country rope frame day bed, ca. 1800

Corner of a 8' x 11' turn of the century attic rug

Pennsylvania red painted blanket chest, ca. 1800

Pieced block quilt, ca. 1930
