I have a massive crocheted bread spread my grandmother made and left me. I have no idea what to do with it as bedspreads are not something I'd ever use. It's bone color so it's not like I can hang it up.. it's made of some kind of cotton. It's very elaborate. It's been in a closet for years now. I guess when I die it will end up in someone else's closet.
That's kind of like my turquoise quilted silk bedspread with oriental embroidery work. My Mom gave it to me after she spend a small fortune on it (her sister was selling them). The thing is I would never decorate my bedroom with turquoise, and this thing is tailored, with ruffled shams. I would never decorate with ruffled shams either. So it is in my closet.
