Vintage Chic Fabric

I found 4 yards of this great vintage fabric at the thrift store today.  It still had the price tag attached from Penney's.  4 - 1.00  Didn't have a date but can you imagine getting 4 yards of fabric for One Dollar at Penney's!  I'm thinking 60s or 70s.  It's cotton and I've already washed it.  It needs pressing but looks great.  I love the vintage colors.  Even though it's blue, it has a Christmas feel.  The design reminds me of abstract pine cones and pine needles.  Can you see it too?

I'm hoping to decorate for Christmas with blue and white in my newly painted light blue living/dining room.  Maybe I'll make Christmas stockings from this fabric with some vintage lace or vintage hankies around the top. 

I must thank Linda from Itsy Bits and Pieces for inspiring me to go thrifting today.  Check out her Goodwill shopping.



Awesome find! I would even say the 1950's even. Is it barkcloth? Sort of looks like the weave on the monitor.
