Vintage sheets

Recently I posted on my Quilting blog about an amazing package I received in the mail. I won a giveaway of vintage sheets from Sewn with Grace. Here is the box that arrived at my door.

and this is what was inside the box.

I was so thrilled to win these vintage sheets because it is getting harder and harder to find any kind of vintage linens in my area.

So on Friday I ventured out to the Good Will and do you know what I found??

Two beautiful twin size sheets in perfect condition!!! They don't even look like they were used! Then I stopped in at the Hospice Thrift store on the way home and grabbed up these -

two sets of pillowcases............

What a day.

What a collection!!!!

I sure have been in Vintage sheet heaven :-)

Sheets are such an underrated decorating element. They can be repurposed in so many ways. Great get! Cherry Kay

Vintage sheets are fantastic. Congratulations on winning the bundle and then finding more in your local thrift shop. What are you going to do with them?

Looks like you picked up some great items! I have some but they are older from the 20-30's and were my great grandmothers....they have to be ironed! I hate to iron.

Enjoy your treasures!!

That is an awesome gift!! What do you use the sheets for, actually their purpose? or for something else. I have a large collection myself.

It always makes me smile when I see vintage sheets on display and recognize some of them as still being in my linen closet from my days as a newlywed 39 years ago.

Wow, what a great giveaway win!! And I had to smile when I saw the pillow cases. The one with the big pink, gold and white flowers on it was a set we had at our cabin when I was a kid! Thank you for joining TTF and have a fun weekend!
