I also didn't mention, that i found/rescued this last week, at a house clearance auction.
It was for sale with a HUGE red curtain, it has been used as a curtain tie/sash for god knows how many years.
Gotta love the "dont bin it reuse it" attitude
I only caught a glimpse of the label by chance, so couldnt resist..... now i have to work out what to do with the curtain! lol
