Lusting after Vintage Bedding

I know this is a super crappy picture of "Nanny Mc Phee" but you have to watch this movie and see the vintage quilts, tartan rugs and granny square blankets/afghans that are on these beds. Truly a crafter's movie if there ever was one. I watched it for the first time on Saturday night and the whole family was getting rather peeved at me for pausing during all the bedroom scenes so I could fully absorb the bedding. Especially the granny square blanket. My husband thinks there are different squares involved but I think they are all the basic grannies with different colour combinations. Absolutley delightful. I may just watch it again for the blankets!

And a few blogs I am quickly becoming addicted to:

Kelly's Vintage Lifestyle

Pink Paint and Roses

Jane's Apron

And by 5:00 pm I always wonder where my time has gone.

I will have to see this one. I did the same thing watching the Narnia movie, the knitwear was exquisite, I don't know if you get the british Miss Marple series in Canada, but if so, its a must to watch, at least 2 knitwear changes for each major character in each episode.

I absolutely agree with you about the wonderful blankets in the children's bedroom... made me want to crochet a granny square blanket right away!
I saw the movie a couple of weeks ago and try now to find some pictures of the blankets and quilts... think I have to rent the movie again...
