Isn't ticking lovely ? I haven't got any in our home, but I really must rectify that situation as it's such a fresh look.

I've got the white pillow with ties ..........

I've have the white shabby mirror ..........

I have the chest of drawers ..........

I have the straw shopper ..........

.......... the vintage cases ..........

.......... the luggage labels ..........

.......... the black and white framed photographs ..........

.......... and even the brass bed but, not a stitch of ticking has entered our house. I think that I shall make it my mission (if I choose to accept it ) to bring a little ticking into our home. How about you, or have you beaten me to it ?

  16. nice blog... have a view of my blog when free.. .. do leave me some comment / guide if can.. if interested can follow my blog...

  17. I so agree - every home should have a little bit of ticking! Leigh

  18. Dear Jacqueline, Yes, I share your enthusiasm for ticking and have found a wonderful [and inexpensive]source of it in Brighton.
    I had a rather dismally upholstered daybed which has been transformed with black and white ticking and now occupies pride of place in my Budapest bathroom.

  19. No ticking for me either...unless it's an occasional ticking off! It's a wonderful thing ticking isn't it? x

  20. Oh you have such great taste Jac' these photo's...I'll have everything in pic one thanks and that bedroom shot too :) Must go get me some ticking!

    Hope your week is going fab my dear,

  21. I love it too Jackie and I only have one piece but now you have me wanting more! I think it may go with my new quilt so I will have to get some fabric and make a couple of throw pillows ~ thanks for that! Hope your had a wonderful week-end. xo

  22. Not a speck! But I can see I need to rectify that right away Jackie. Beautiful images as always!
    Hugs to you from here...

  23. Dear Jackie,
    Why is it that everything you post I want! Love the ticking.

  24. Jackie,
    You aren't alone on either point - I love the look of ticking, but don't have any. You've inspired me to start a search for the perfect linens for a special place in my home. Rita

  25. You must get some will never look back. SOme of my favourite shots there. Beautiful.

  26. Hi Jackie,

    It is a bit embarrassing, but I did not know what ticking was. I had to look it up on google :-)!

    You made me realise I don't have any ticking as well. I used to have some in my home (curtains & pillows), but that was years ago. I Love it though.

    I think it is a bit out of fashion at the moment. You hardly come upon it in magazines. Only in summer, when they show us beach houses, the ticking returns!

    Wish you a happy evening!

    Lieve groet, Madelief

  27. You have the white with the ties, I have the ticking ones. I love the red basket! And what about those stripey cases!!


  28. Ticking is fabulous! I love the versatility; so easy to incorporate into any style.

  29. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!! Yes, I do have some ticking in my home :)

    Thanks so much Jackie for the sweet Thanksgiving email you send last week, it was very much appreciated!!

    Hugs ~

    :) T

  30. I love ticking too, it's so fresh and clean looking! XX!

  31. Beautiful Jackie...isn't ticking wonderful...i love it in all colours.
    Mine comes in the form of an apron. After seeing these photos,
    I would love to have more. Thank you :))

    Jeanne xx

    PS..thank you for your comment too Jackie...I think they were all so friendly thinking that I had a few tasty morsels for them :)

  32. Oh Jackie You Darling Angel! You always make me feel so special..Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being so quick to enter my giveaway. My fingers are crossed specially for you. I would be honored to have you wear something of mine.

  36. dear jackie... you know this is near and dear to my heart... if you need anything... you know where to find me... xx

  37. They are lovely! Shabby chic is another love I have! Enjoy the good day, Kellie xx

  38. Hi Jackie ... yes it is such a wonderful, versatile fabric.
    Your images are just beautiful ... as always!
    My favourites are the gorgeous caned back chair and those beautiful vintage cases ... aren't they something!

    You're right about the havoc the snow is causing ... but I still cant get over living somewhere where it snows ... its magical!
    Have a great rest of the week and rug up as that nasty northern wind is a blowing today!

  39. Love all these beautiful shots - I'll take what you're having please! I am actually rather obsessed with ticking even though I don't have any in my house at the moment. One of my settees used to be ticking but was old and I recovered it with something else because of where it was going. I think I shall go on a mission as well! My first visit - my other mission - I shall return!

  40. I don't but am on a similar mission...perhaps something I can make into a table runner!

  41. Hi Jackie!!!! I don't have ticking either, but in a new home there are a lot of things missing and a lot of new objects to buy! I will think about ticking!!!
    Many hugs!

  42. I do have just a couple of pieces of ticking...but I haven't a clue where they are. I packed them away when I moved and still haven't come across them! I love ticking!!! I agree, you really must put it on your list. Should I say...Time is ticking!?!
