  2. Don't know if you mean the whole ensemble, the bed, or just the coverlet, but it all looks nice.

  4. The Chenille bedspread was purchased off eBay. Sorry for any confusion.

    The bedroom suite belonged to my husbands grand parents. His grandfather gave it as a wedding present back in the 1920's. It is in original condition.

  8. Hi Tania, the spread is lovely I am a chenille freak too and have collected several, it amazes me how well they last,I think the housewives of the past really wahsed everything caringly and it shows on all the old linnens etc.

  10. I remember having one of these when I was little, or maybe on my mums bed. But I used to love the feel of it.

  11. Gorgeous chenille. I love these old bedspreads and they are so hard to find now. I have one, but it sadly is too small for our bed.

  14. That looks so good, as if it was made just for that bed. :) Do you think they made chenille bed covers in king size? :/

  15. 'Oh Chenille, you are divine.' If I ever get another daughter (unlikely due to being post meno) I am definitely going to call her Chenille...but you have to say it in that wonderful nasal aussie way with an upward inflection on the end.
