Sylvia Peter's Special Pink Treasure
This has come a long ways from what it was. Originally it had a sateen like heart on the inside all blotched with stains [ smile] Ripped as well, so I removed that.
You can see it has been damaged by black something like ink. I don't recall exactly what it was on it, I think paint. I tried to remove it with paint thinner immediately, but I suspect it was set in good that day. I was afraid I might remove the pink color, so I quit. I remember the day it happened so quick as I was painting a dresser. One of those dumb moves that didn't have to happen. I'd have better off not to spread it and leave the stain in the small spot it was. [smile]
I love the color of it and the fact that it was from my Mothers side of the family. I shall probably keep it even as it is. I think maybe her mother an aunt or sisters gave it to her.
